I am going to a sleep specialist Friday

Family Tree Guy wrote:My two cents, and there is some scientific literature supporting the concept, is to give binaural beats at the delta wave frequency (slow) a try for 20min before bedtime. The concept is that your brain gets synced to this frequency associated with deep sleep, and over time you actually have more deep sleep. (and there are no side effects except sleepiness, and the cost is essentially free because you can download all sorts of these things for free). I have been using this for years and finally got my wife to try it-- and within a few nights she was commenting on how she slept through the whole night for the first time in as long as she could remember...
Diet? Nutrition? Deep sleep? Interest in lifestyle, fact that I had a couple of bad sleep genes...not a blip, just an eye glaze if I started talking about what was going on. Didn't really tell them much as they were clearly not interested.
I'm doing the sleep study because I want to know if my Fitbit is correct. I have low hopes. How do you really know anything when the test is done in a lab, outside your normal habitat? With wires connected to your body? People watching you? In a room that is nothing like your home environment?
I use SnoreLab --- don't snore. She was kinda blank on that one. So, am walking into this with the idea that it's info gathering only. They must get a cut from C-Pap people. I asked about other alternatives. Per them, the mouth change thing doesn't work and they weren't aware of others.
Waste of my time aside from learning how all this works...

This person will then ask you to start a consolidation sleep plan or something similar. The whole thing was a waste of time and effort and sleep, in my case. I hope your specialist is more insightful and holistic thinking than mine was.
Happy to entertain suggestions??? I will do more than entertain them, I will implement them
