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

Thank you for this site, I have learned so much about sleep apnea from here (more info than what my doctor provided me with).  Now I need to dig out my machine, wash it up and start using it.  Do I use it even during a nap?  Again...thank you for this site!

Large neck size: Is that actually a SYMPTOM of sleep apnea or a possible cause? I have a small enough neck but I suffered OSA since birth since my soft palate was too long. By the time it was diagnosed I also had a severely deviated septum. I also had other abnormalities in my upper respiratory system. I had 7 surgeries to clear things up. I may have to have more sinus surgery in the future, but for now I am doing pretty well. I am very happy to be off CPAP thanks to the surgery.

I was diagnosed with sleep apnea in 2004 , and have had 3 sleep studies because they say I have 0% in stage 4 or is it 5? I'm not sure because it has been so long. Whatever stage is deep sleep, where your body actually replemishes itself. I have tried every mask I think they make (at least back in 2004 an 5) I end up tearing my mask off in the middle of the night because of severe dry mouth or throat like Jackie Davis states. The masks either cause a sore on the bridge of my nose or cause the above symptoms mentioned. I have tried full masks, nasal masks, the humidifier that attaches to my machine and nothing helps. Ending result; I end up not using it just to get what little sleep I can, although interupted. I don't even know why I have sleep apnea? I am 5'4" 130 lbs , with a small neck. I'm so exhausted most of the time that I have trouble concentrating, and with my memory. Any advice?
I'm so tired of being tired.

has any one else experienced swelling when they awake arms legs knees feet hands ?

I was dx back in 2004 never did the cpap like I was suppose to. Going back in next month for another evaluation. How ever I do have a question. Many times during the night I will choke and wake up or cough and wake up is this part of the sleep apnea? Or is this just dust floating around in the air? Does sleep apnea also cause dizziness when you awake and stay with you through out most of the day? Years ago it was very bad I could not keep eyes open while driving but then I moved from that state and lost some weight but now the dizziness is new to me and just started yes gained weight as well. ?

I have had sleep apnea for over 2 years. I have a cpap but the problem is severe dry mouth. I wear the mask and i wake up within 2 hours . My mouth is so dry that my tongue is stuck to the roof of my mouth and i feel as though I am being stangled. These added problems habe made sleeping very hard.
