I'm glad to hear you were able to move ahead with the sleep study. I'm still not convinced that the CPAP is as beneficial for me as they said it would be.
I have extremely "dry mouth" associated with it. My mouth is so dry it becomes literally stuck together and I have to work it open. Fortunately, there is a product you can get in the dental hygiene aisle that helps with that. The dry mouth issue still wakes me several times through out the night with or without . The other thing that wakes me is masks leaking. That is real loud.
I never remember waking due to an apnea issue but I'm I know I'm awake now because of reasons related to the CPAP. I also remain tired mid-day and often require a nap. Fortunately, my job is a split shift so I can work that in.
It's been 4 months now but as I said I'm still not convinced this isn't a just a money producer for the industry.
