5 hrs sleep= easy to wake but not refreshed. 7+= headaches, oversleeping, coma like. Worse with Trileptal (for bipolar). Blood sugar crashing @ night?
Blood sugar: Possible. One quick way to tell - don't eat any refined carbs (bread, regular potatoes, etc.) for dinner. At bedtime, have a snack of some celery and peanut butter. The peanut butter "burns slowly" in your body. If you feel better in the A.M. - that was it! you should also have a fasting Insulin checked in the A.M. To see if you are "hyperinsulinemic." that could mimic what you describe. ...Read more

Would a zeo sleep manager data be useful to a sleep doc? It shows i'm awake when i'm sure i'm sleeping. I have well-controlled apnea using cpap.
Not yet: I use the zeo but only for my own knowledge. It's useful to improve your sleep hygiene. But it can't monitor your breathing, pulse, or muscle movements except in a basic, indirect way. Currently, it has not been validated as clinically effective. Nor can we correlate the data with standard measurement techniques used in sleep medicine. Zeo has the same disclaimer on their website. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
