New Sleep Study Results.
I am 6'3" 234 lbs, fatigued or extremely tired all the time, have had high blood pressure since age 19, now 49. I addition to the pain I feel all the time, I have Crohn's, hypothyroidism, hypogonadism, anxiety, fibro and depression. I take prescribed meds for all of these issues.
Results of sleep study, or polysomnogram.
Sleep onset was long being 39 1/2 minutes. Patient entered REM sleep late in the night after 306 minutes of sleep onset. He slept for 5 hours and 6 minutes and recording time was 6 hours and 21 minutes with a sleep efficiency of 80% of total in bed time. His sleep effiency was moderately reduced.
Patient slept in supine position mostly.
Stage I sleep was normal at 8%
Stage II sleep was increased at 64%
Stage delta sleep normal at 17%
Stage REM sleep was decreased at 11%of total in bed time.
The patient also had 75 minutes of wakefulness after sleep onset


The patient overall had no evidence of significant obstructive sleep apnea syndrome with an apnea/hyponea index was normal at 3.1/hour. T total of 15 hyponeas and 1 apnea was recorded.
On the oximetry channel, he was less than 90% for nearly 115 minutes, with the lowest oxygen sat being at 71%

Impressions
1 No evidence of sleep apnea
2 Difficulty initiating and maintaining sleep with frequent awakenings.
3 Moderate to severe nocturnal Hypoxemia.

Recommendations
1 Cardiopulmonary disease needs to be ruled out.
2 Overnight oximetry to see if patient needs oxygen.

Does this test indicate fibro or cfs to anyone?

I'm curious why you think this confirms that you have fibromyalgia. Have you been to any specialists that suspects this? Or are you self diagnosing based on this sleep study?
