I’ve been coming down with a few symptoms of a cold since Thursday, but today it’s hit me full force. I’ve been coughing, gasping for breath, and my head feels like it’s going to explode. I’m going to head off to urgent care when it opens at 10:00 am.
What is most worrisome is that Taylor told me this morning that I was snoring like a emphysematic chainsaw. He’s mostly deaf in one ear, had his other ear pressed into the pillow, and still kept waking up from my snoring and gasping.I would breath shallow for a while then stop, then dramatically gasp for air. I’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea in the past, but was more worried about the daytime hypersomnia. I have been waking up with my hands and feet tingling. My ignored C-PAP machine is en route from Michigan currently, but the mask doesn’t fit me and causes boils on my nose. It’s time to see a sleep specialist STAT. And get a Provigil prescription. When I’m at urgent care today, I’m going to ask for a note or referral to get into a sleep specialist this week.
