CPAP & Dry Mouth

In recent months, I have developed extreme dry mouth as a result of the CPAP.  I am a mouth breather when using CPAP.Recently, I saw an advertisement for the symptoms of dry mouth, but as usual, when I need the information to have a discussion with both my primary care  physician and my dentist I haven't seen the ad. Has anyone else seen the ad and can anyone remember the info in the ad?Thanks in advance,DanSee More

CPAP - cure worse than the disease

It's ironic that before I was diagnosed with sleep apnea in 2000, I had no problem sleeping 8-9 hours a night. If I did wake up during the night, I had no problem falling right back to sleep, and I wasn't tired during the day.From the first night I brought home the CPAP I haven't had one decent night's sleep. Not one. I don't have any problem falling asleep, but I can't stay asleep. At first I was waking up after 4-5 hours and couldn't get back to sleep for a couple of hours. Now it's more like…See More

New mouth device on the market

I've been hearing advertising for this product over the past few days.  It's sold as something to help snoring, but as I look at the information it seems to me that it would work just as well as my mandibular advancement device (MAD).In other words, this could help some of us with sleep apnea.Read about it here.Anybody have any thoughts about this?  See More

We already know that obstructive sleep apnea can cause stroke, but can it can also cause central sleep apnea, MS, or even Alzheimer's? How can it lead to various other unexpected conditions such as migraines, headaches, dizziness, lightheadedness, various stomach ailments, and even ringing, hearing loss, or vertigo?

Dr. Park,

I would have so loved to participate in this seminar, but a college course conflicts with this.
Will a recorded Podcast be available ?

I think that OSA may also be a factor in fibromyalgia, at least for some number of fibromyalgia victims.--.
I attended Dr. Park's webinar last night and found if very informative. The affect that sleep apnea has on the brain and it's function was most interesting. I am curious to know more though about the affects of low Progesterone levels. Does anyone have any info on this subject?
Progesterone acts as an upper airway muscle dilator or stimulant. Specifically, the genioglossus muscle (your tongue) loses muscle tone as progesterone slowly drops (before a woman's periods and during menopause). This is why HRT can be helpful in many women. The estrogen to progesterone ratio has to be balanced. Some peri-menopausal women use OTC progesterone creams with success.

Thank you Dr. Park,
At last check my Progesterone levels were low (due to Peri-menopause) I was prescribed Prometrium (100mg) to regulate my periods. I take it SID x14 days.
I will share this info with my Gynecologist at my next visit.
