Poorly-controlled asthma affects results of sleep study?
Patient :My asthma is not currently well-controlled. Also, separately, my doctor has referred me to get a sleep study done for sleep apnea.
My pulmonologist and I are currently trying to find an asthma treatment that keeps my asthma controlled, but, of course, this could take a while. So I'm wondering: should I wait (two months or so) for my asthma to be well-controlled before taking the sleep study? Or can I do the sleep study right away?
Symptoms: Wheezing, coughing, waking up at night, stop breathing at night
