DIY Sleep Study

So I tried video-ing myself sleeping one night to investigate why I wake up so frequently (and therefore feel fatigued during the day).


I didn’t discover anything groundbreaking. I didn’t snore. In fact I was a pretty quiet sleeper. I did twitch my nose quite a bit, as if something was tickling it, which is funny to watch.

I’m trying to do this on the cheap. Even with insurance a “real” sleep study would cost quite a bit. And the Zeo is running about 150 bucks and might not be worth it.

UPDATE (March 2014):

A lot’s changed since I posted this. Got a real sleep study done. Obstructive Sleep Apnea with an AHI of 43. It took 9 months to find a CPAP mask that worked for me. My AHI is now around 3. Still have insomnia though. We’re doing sleep hygiene, Lunesta, and now even Sleep Restriction Protocol.
