During the MLST I didn't sleep at all. My first nap was an hour and fifteen minutes after I woke up. Then the second one was an hour after that one ended. Then after the second nap the sleep tech told me I only needed to stay for two more naps. Which really stressed me out! I mean if they ruled out narcolepsy already, what could it be?
That sounds odd to me. I thought the naps were supposed to be 2 hours apart, starting 2 hours after you woke up from the PSG. At least, that's what everything I've read told me, and how mine went.
I also didn't think I'd slept for most of the naps--I never felt like I was falling asleep, like I was sleeping, or like I was waking up, just like the sleep attacks that took me to the doctor in the first place--so when the tech came in and woke me up and asked if I'd slept, my answer for 3 of them was, "Has it been 20 minutes? Well ... I didn't think I slept, but I guess I must have, 'cause it only feels like a couple minutes, and if I'd lain here awake for 20 minutes, I'd be bored to tears and it'd feel like hours." (The other two were, "I guess I must have, 'cause I remember dreaming.") And, as it turned out, I slept for all 5 naps.
