      Hi Dubbyaman. I scored around 22-24 on the THI. I live in the UK but the questions are the same here too. My biggest problem has been anxiety. The question that asks whether we have trouble falling asleep due to T doesn't specify if that means with or without masking or sleeping pills.

      barotrauma? stress?
      I didn't do the test but I bet I'm off the chart anyway.

      @UKJon, if you need drugs or masking for falling asleep you are in huge trouble with T, I'd say.
