He wants me to see a sleep specialist. I didn't complain since the latest issue of the National MS Society magazine had a good section on fatigue and recommended sleep studies if all else failed. This is where they wire you up with electrodes to determine if you have any problems that interfere with your sleep. This specialist will talk to me first, then determine if I need to have a sleep study. (My first appointment is next week, so stay tuned)

For these types of studies to be truly effective, it is my opinion that husbands, room mates, significant others, kids, and pets should be there also. Maybe they snore, have restless leg syndrome, talk in their sleep, toss and turn, get up and down, or wake you up to say good night. Could these be the true reason for sleep disruptions?
For the record, I am not saying in print that this is true in my case...
