If you have trouble falling asleep....

I thought that when I got my sleep apnea diagnosis, that -- at last! -- all my sleep problems had come to an end.Ha!I have trouble falling asleep. Indeed, I rarely feel sleepy at night although I do feel tired. I even cut back on computer at night, etc., etc. (and installed f.lux on my computer) but I still had trouble. Now I'm doing something different: wearing special glasses (Uvex S1933X Skyper Safety Eyewear glasses). They block out the blue -- and they're making a difference! First I tried…See More

"If the heated tube works with your machine I would try that.  They also make covers for your tubing which may help some.  I think the heated tube may be your answer.  Keep us posted."

"Richard, some folks just use the humidifier in a Passover mode.  They just don't turn it on, but let the air pick up moisture without heat."

colloidal silver

a humidifier can be used with colloidal silverthis can keep the humidifier clean for day maybe weeks or longer without the need to clean the humidifiersilver colloidal is antimicrobial and you could just top up your humidifier without cleaning and at the same time treat your bodyor you just put silver on it own into the humidifierSee More

Sleep Number Beds: Have they helped anyone & worth the money?

Sleep Number Beds: Have they helped anyone & worth the money? 

I'm considering getting one with the Head & Foot elevation feature. Lying on my back in the store, lower back pain seemed to go away, but for over $5,000, I'm looking for real CPAP customer opinions please. Thanks

I do not personally have one. All of my patients that have one sware by them.
Hi Garry, Is their a free trial period? 5 k $   Thats 5 times what my car is worth ! Good Sleep,Chris
Thanks. They are nice but Chris makes my point very well. For an old army sergeant, 5k is a significant opportunity cost. That's 2,500 $2.00 Burger King items. Lol - I think the is a trial period I may invoke if I don't improve.
We bought ours from Craigs list. The adjustable ones don't come up very often but I kept watching. One came up that was too expensive but I waited some more and then got a bargain. I like it. Not as much as our old tube waterbed but I do find it comfortable and I love the adjustable head and foot.

My son and daughter-in-law got one,and after just a few weeks they hated that they had spent the money on it. Because of the difference in the settings they rolled into each other all night. They did not have the kind where you could raise the head and feet though. Don't know if that would make a difference.

Hi, I work for Select Comfort in customer service.  Clearly I'm biased, but for people with back pain, I think we have the best bed out there.  Among people who come to us with back pain, better than nine out of ten report some improvement after switching to our bed.  The adjustable bases that raises and lowers the head and foot does raise the cost considerably, but we have monthly cash-off specials and financing promotions to help make the beds more affordable.  If you'd like to learn more about our bed you can "like" us on facebook at www.facebook.com/sleepnumber visit our www.beds.com/blog or check our www.sleepnumber.com

Ours isn't height/angle adjustable, but we are quite happy with it.

If they are rolling into each other, they may not have a Select Comfort, or they bought the very lowest possible model.  Almost all but the the very cheapest are made with two bladders separated by a very firm 'buffer'.  We not only don't roll into each other AT ALL, I actually have a hard time rolling over to DH when I want to snuggle.
