Mon, Mar 11 11:34pm · Cleaning your CPAP mask. in Sleep Health

@franie I wash my hose once in a while in the shower with just a drop of baby shampoo and the same temp water that I shower in; after rinsing it thoroughly I drape it over the showerhead and it dries quickly. I fill my reservoir with only distilled water, usually to the Max. Amount, and usually use the entire amount nightly. I notice my throat & nose are too dry when I don't fill it.

I haven't had any experience with medical marijuana but I was very impressed reading the March 2019 edition of NUTRITION ACTION Health Letter which is published by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest. They have an article on pp.9-11 called "10 Things You Should Know about CANNABIS," including how to understand the terms THC and CBD and what these stand for, as well as how they work. This article also lists the only three specific uses that Cannabis has conclusively or substantially been noted for positive medical outcomes. CBD can interfere with medications that include "some statins, calcium channel blockers, and antidepressants." This article also cautions on using edibles because the standard dosage can vary by state or take longer to work than they expect, leading some people to take more and become unpleasantly high. Also labels are misleading and some even have detectable levels of pesticides, microbes, or solvents. Their "take-home message: If you try THC, start low. That means around 2-3mg. Work you way up slowly until you get the effect you want."

I've been using a Vit B-12 Quick Dissolve under the tongue; it's 2500 mcg by Nature's Bounty. Because my blood tests lately have said there was too much B-12 in my system, I now take it every other day, but I will not quit taking it because it seems to be the key reason I haven't had mouth sores for years now. However, I noticed that some one posting here uses Amitriptyline to treat hers and I also take that for another reason; perhaps that's part of my success in treating BMS !

@donnaclabaugh Thanks for one more piece of a puzzle and I 2nd your use of the L-Lysine. I just read this last week in the newspaper column called The Peoples Pharmacy that one person who wrote in about cold sores says eating Kiwi fruit can help get rid of them and the authors said there was some research backing this up. Interesting that seem to be many reasons for mouth sores and many ways to help get rid of them!

@mamajomclane Actually, no, I do mean B-12 over the counter vitamins from a reputable source. I recommend the company: To Your Health out of Arizona who've been publishing studies of Fibromyalgia and worked with doctors (who also happen to have Fibromyalgia) and now sells supplements to alleviate Chronic Pain, Arthritis, and Fibromyalgia which covers formulas for Sleep, Pain, Stress, and Energy Depletions. I've used their products for over 20 years.

@ristu I had mouth sores on each side of my mouth at the back of my teeth (inner cheek sides) and yes, the Vit. B12 did take them away. When I eat something very acidic, I get a slight soreness, and it goes away soon. While I'm not allergic to Walnuts, Raw Pineapple, and Strawberries, they do affect my mouth and make my tongue sore, as well. Years ago, I developed a very sore mouth and tongue from taking Vitamin A and coincidently, or not, my mouth sores came at this time too. While taking the Vit. A, my mouth was so sore I couldn't eat very well. My sister, who also takes supplements for Fibromyalgia, said she had the same symptoms when taking Vit. A.
I urge you to check out a Naturopath whose medical practice also contains information on vitamins, foods, and body depleted hormones,, etc.

@ristu I don't have any pain in my mouth now, unless I eat really acidic foods such as lemons, strawberries, walnuts, and raw pineapple. When I was younger none of these things bothered me and I ate a lot of them. Even when walnuts are baked or cooked, they continue to make my tongue and mouth hurt.

@ristu No one told me to take the Vit. B 12; I just discovered that it worked for me by beginning to take it for some other reason. I have Fibromyalgia and keep up with the latest information as much as I can. The Vit D 3 is because I live in rainy Seattle where we don't have a lot of sunshine in the winter/spring months.
