GUEST,guest from NW Help: Sleep Apnea (44) RE: Help: Sleep Apnea 30 Apr 04

i used to have a similar problem...loud snoring, stopped breathing, etc. my wife would wake me sometimes or get me to roll on my side which helped some. i knew people who did the mask thing but that sounded awful to me. so i tried to figure out why i was doing this stuff. i changed my diet and drinking habits , which helped a lot, but the thing that changed it for me was pillows. i would usually use one pillow at night and my head would slip forward to an angle that constricted my throat. i started using 3 pillows and propping my head up so it was more even with my body at a similar aspect as when i'm standing. i hardly snore at all anymore and my wife has not noticed my breathing stopping for months. i'm sure sleep apnea is a legitimate syndrome, but try analyzing everything about your body position and diet before you sign on to the mask i would counsel.
