Re: How do I find out what's waking me up??

you said nothing about when you went to sleep. May be that you sleep enough hours. It is also related to your age which you hide.

Ask them why they wanted to do the UPPP surgery on you, and did not suggest the use of a CPAP?

Re: OT: Colonoscopy Prep

I survived colon cancer , but one result was to put me on more frequent scopings than average, so I have been through this quite a few times. Drinking the prep as cold as you can get it is very helpful. Using a straw cuts down on the time that the distasteful solution spends passing over your tongu...

Re: Tremendous success with MAD device, no longer need CPAP

In my case I have upper and lower removable dentures. Would the MAD device work for me? With my current APAP I remove the lower denture for the night.

Re: NOW-what to do about my insomnia???

If I was going to sleep at 10 pm as you do then I would wake up at 3 am and then I would not know what to do. So I drag my going to bed to past midnight by watching TV (BBC news and Charlie Rose). Then if I wake up before 5 pm I would remove the mask but leave the chinstrap on. Most of the times I m...

Re: Dry mouth

Not from CPAP:

The two main symptoms of Sjogren's syndrome are:
•Dry eyes. Your eyes may burn, itch or feel gritty — as if there's sand in them.
•Dry mouth. Your mouth may feel like it's full of cotton, making it difficult to swallow or speak.

Re: CPAP mask with built-in chin strap?

Can you describe how would you attach a chin strap to this nasal mask? If you attach a chinstrap to a head strap of the mask then the mask would be pulled down. http://www.directhomemedical.com//masks-cpap-bipap/eson-nasal-cpap-mask.jpg http://www.directhomemedical.com/accessories/chinstrap-tiara-ru...
