Five Day Cure

I believe I have found a cure that only take five days which I am trialing now It has many benificial side effects as well by reducing snoring to name onePM ME as I do not want mainstream media to find out and have it banned as I fear that is how it will goWill try again after a little breakIn addition will increase omega 3And thirdly a chiropractic to realign atlas bone in spine is just a passing thought See More

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

It is now about a year since I got my last surgery. 3 months after I got out a full in-lab PSG study that showed that I was completely cured. I've now completed my first

annual sleep test.


How have I experienced this first year?


I need hardly tell how nice it is to get rid of my CPAP, it is wonderful.


The first 7-8 months I had a strange feeling in my remaining Uvula. It was not unpleasant, just weird. I think that it has been a kind of a phantom sensation of still
having my full Uvula. I have read that there are some nerves in the Uvula. Then
this feeling disappeared, and today I just have a normal (but much smaller)
Uvula.


At my first PSG study after my surgery, they found a little snoring I did not have before my surgery.


The new result from my annual follow-up sleep tests shows that I still have no Apneas or 

Hypopneas, so I'm still fully cured, but my snoring has largely disappeared again.


Simultaneously, I was studied in the nose and throat, which showed that everything was very nice looking.


I think that when you once have or have had Sleep Apnea so you will always have a lot of focus on your quality of sleep. I've had an extreme focus on this, which may be
a problem. 


Even people without sleep apnea may have a bad night. This, I immediately perceived as though my sleep apnea had perhaps come again.


I have talked this through with my Sleep Doctor and my ENT, and we agreed that I must now try to "forget" my fear of Sleep Apnea. In my situation there is only a minimal risk that I might have a relapse because my soft palate and my tongue are

not affected.


So I will now try to "forget" my former Sleep Apnea. I will nevertheless from time

to time look in to this website.


I will have my next sleep study (and maybe the last) within 3 years.


If someone responds to this thread, I will of course respond back, just as anyone has questions you are obviously free to PM me.


Thank you to everyone on this forum. It has been (and are) great to be a member of a forum among so many competent people.


To Mike,


I was among the first who became a member of this forum. It's amazing what you have
accomplished.

Henning, I am very happy for your good results. I suspect that the tonsillectomy was 95% of the cure and the nasal surgery and uvula trimming were 5%. What do you or your doctor think ?

Yes Mike, that is a reminder for me to thank you for the good work you have done with the forum. You are improving people's lives.
Hi Banyon,

I am not sure which of my operations in the nose worked most. These together changed my AHI from moderate to mild.

Actually, I think in my case was the reduction of my Uvula the biggest prize, but I cannot know for sure when I got my tonsils removed simultaneously.
