I'm open to new ideas from anyone who has successfully managed Sleep Apnea with a mouthguard for bruxism and allergy problems. From what I have read, it takes a lot of trial and error to figure this out!
. Using Airsense 10 Autoset for her with humidifier and heated hose with N20 nasal mask
- I also have bruxism and have an upper teeth mouthguard, which I've had for quite some time
- non allergic rhinitis which before the APAP was under control
- side sleeper
Things I have tried (unsuccessfully)
*changing humidity and hose temperature
*changing just humidity or just hose temperature
*Daily use of saline rinses and avamys (fluticasone furoate nasal spray) - ongoing
*Lansnioh (lanolin) gel
*machine is kept clean in addition to following manufacturers instructions, I use a soclean2 daily. (plus I've only had it 2 weeks so there can't be enormous build up!)
Any ideas welcome! I'm just hoping the answer is not that I'll have to just deal with it.
I'd tried a full face mask when picking up my machine (though have never slept with one) but the straps felt they constricted my jaw too much.
