Do you use a chin strap? If you're a mouth breather, you may need a chin strap so that your mouth stays closed. It's important to keep it closed throughout the night for a lot of reasons -- mouth, dental, etc., etc.
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

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
Hi Martha, glad the headache is better, but wish it was gone. It seems unusual for the humidifier to start using all the water for just the past two nights. Check and see if the level accidently got turned up. If this continues I would call the DME (whoever you got the machine from) and talk to one of the techs. There could be a fault in the heater and it would be simple to switch the humidifier out if it's broken.
Oh, Martha, I'm sorry it's not going well for you. It does take some getting used to and there can be so many problems that you have to tackle one by one. I have only been on CPAP for 3 1/2 years and the biggest problem I had was with the mask, so I have been lucky.
I'd be glad to try and help with any specific problems or questions.
However, I encourage you to start a new discussion with the details of what's going badly. You'll get a lot more feedback that way. There's not a lot of activity on the forum over the weekend. I'll be home so feel free to write me back if there is something I can help you with. The most important thing is to use the machine all night, every night, and for naps. If you're not able to do that let us help you get there.
