Sleep Apnea Pillows: What helps?
I was diagnosed with complex sleep apnea a year ago and started using a BiPap machine. I got constant ear infections from using the machine. My doctor reduced the pressure as much as possible, but finally said I had to stop using the machine. Changed insurance and I am now seeing another sleep doctor and starting over with sleep studies etc I went to an ENT who could not help or understand the problem. I will try again, but expect I will likely have the same problem with my ears. (I have tried dietary changes too, but even off of the machine I have chronic ear issues, so that and chronic lung congestion are unresolved issues.). Because of Covid, I am not sure when I will even be able to do an in-clinic sleep study again, so I am just on my own for now. I did do a "home sleep study" recently and found that I still have sleep apnea, even sleeping on a wedge and on my side. There are alot of sleep apnea pillows on the market, so just wanted to see if anyone has found one you think has helped. I am also not a good candidate for the oral device. Thanks for ideas about any good products you may have come across!
