If you never found that right solution for you, I'd suggest you go somewhere else and get more answers. Sounds to me like you don't a full grasp on your condition. That's the doc's fault.
I love the Doc and clinic I'm going to. They are 100% committed to fixing my sleep and the service is exceptional. There's no doubt they want to see me get well regardless of what we have to do. If you haven't fixed your sleep you need to keep looking.
Well when I started on it I was very clausterphobic about it all so they may have done that initially just to get me used to it. Don't know that with certainty but I do recall having problems going beyond 12/13 at first. For many different reasons/lame excuses I haven't really stuck to my end of the bargain so they may not have had much of an opportunity to work whatever plan they had for me. But my Dr. is really quite arrogant and prickly and it's difficult for me to be honest with him/talk to him at all. I need to rededicate my self to the situation and soon but I don't believe I have any other options locally other than my current Dr.
