So the dental device does not eliminate the Cpap therapy or are you choosing to use both?
Thank you in advance for your answer.

I have heard about the dental devices and their improvement. My dentist recently had training regarding sleep apnea and dental devices. He advised they are not as efficient as Cpap, but are getting there. Please keep in touch and let me know how you are doing. Nice talking with you.
It is great to know that someone else has the same problems. I keep trying because I know the health benefits and did notice a small difference in sleep quality if only for a few hours. But feeling wonderful as other people I have talked with has not yet happened for me either. I have been non compliant for a year and am trying again always hoping something will change. What mask do you have if I may ask? Nice to meet you.
What mask do you use? I have tried several full face masks and they all seem to leak. This may be a fitting issue, but I have tried for the last year to find the proper fitting mask for me. My provider has two to three to choose from and I don’t know where to go from here, Thank you for bring the subject of being your best frien up. I sleep much better but only for short periods due to leaks and rearranging my mask!
Would you please let me know what you take rather than PPI’s. I had the same situation and finally stopped taking them after 3 years of being miserable. I do have Gerd and Barrett’s Esophagus so PPI’s were to keep acid neutralized is what Dr explained to me. I now take Apple Cider Vinegar daily and it keeps Gerd under control, but maybe damaging esophagus. I don’t know. I would rather have a better quality of life rather than longevity not feeling well every day. Nice to meet you.
Nice to hear back from you. I feel better without PPI and Dr said H 2 blockers would not adequately do the same job. I also have osteoporosis and get yearly Reclast infusions. Thyroid meds and PPI both effect bone density I was told. I can’t believe I go to a University Hospital and no one treats the whole person. I keep going from specialist to specialist with new diagnosis and am prescribed medications that contraindicate each other and I am the one pointing this out to them. I am sorry if I sound flustered but I am. It would be great to sit down with one Dr and go over all issues and maybe feel better again. I am still trying but with so many different diagnosis I believe something is being missed.
Thank you again
You are a wealth of information and I forgot to mention in my post to phoggie that I tested positive for Celiac Disease. To add to the Barrett’s post I was told most common in people with Gerd and I was prescribed a daily dose of 80 and then lowered to 40 mg of protonix, a PPI to lessen the severity and protect the esophagus. I never had H Pylori in biopsy but ulcer and SIBO. I recently read up on this medication and discontinued against my Dr. advice. I had been on the medication for three years and feel so much better without it. I am not advocating that people stop their medications but in my case I believe the risks out way the benefit until more research substantiates long term use of PPI’s. I value your thoughts on this. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge. I find this board a great place with great people!
