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

Chin Straps- the good, bad and ugly

Hello fellow sufferers - my name is Russ. I am fairly new to SG but more than likely, I have endured very similar obstacles as you. I have always been a snorer and was recently diagnosed with sleep apnea. I distinctly remember the first night I tried the CPAP machine that my MD insisted would help me. I awoke a few hours into the night with complete frustration – I was very uncomfortable, my mouth was dry, my jaw ached, and the side of my face was incredibly sore. I sat at the edge of my bed in…See More

Hi Russell 

I like your idea of the anti snoring strap, i personally have problems breathing through my nose because of some sinus deformity inside my nose when i get any dust or irritation my mucus membrane swells and i cannot breathe clearly, i have had silver nitrate treatment in the past which somewhat helped but i would be scared of using your device for fear of suffocation.

thanks for your friend request anyway.

good luck

Wayno.
