Chin strap blocking mouth

Post by Chalkie » Fri Apr 30, 2021 3:40 am

Should I be concerned about my chin strap sliding around my chin in my sleep and totally blocking my mouth? I feel I need the strap as on the odd nights without it I seem to get even worse sleep.

I get nightmares sometimes before waking with it over my mouth, where I am squashed or confined in some way.
