Yup, you are right, need to go to the Dr anyway, but by the time you get an appointment, set up a sleep study, you will be already with AD. That is, if your doctor even will believe you need a sleep study. When you are a woman in menopause, everything is blamed on that, and if your labs are 'normal' (based on medically accepted standards) you won't get one. Several years ago, I had a very good internist who wanted me to go do one, and I poo-pooed it saying I am too young to have breathing problems and was too scared to do it. Fast forward 10 or more years, wished I had a base line of every test there was, including an MRI. But, alas, is not to be, so on with a DIY for diet, exercise, sleep study, lol.
