The sleep study I had done measured brain waves, not oxygen, so maybe mine was a different kind of study. They had wires all over my head ... took me a day to get all the goop out of my hair. They were testing for sleep apnea ... mini awakenings during the night that you're not conscious of ... not narcolepsy. I thought narcolepsy was a problem of falling asleep unexpectedly during the day.

My sleep study monitor was not at all interested in the falling-asleep leg jerks, either. They just wanted to measure the brain patterns once you were asleep: deep dreamless sleep, REM sleep, light arousals, etc.

Good luck, Heather! Hope you get some answers.
