Was reading on my Drs website, and he mentions this product that goes in your nose to open the ariways more. I know some people cannot sleep with the machines, so figured I would mention this here. His words: "The treatment of sleep apnea can vary from weight loss (always a good suggestion for those who carry extra weight) to treatment of the cause of sinus and adenoid swelling (most frequently allergy), to surgery, in extreme cases. And of course, there are machines, CPAP and BiPAP being the most common, that push air through the obstructions at night. These machines have become less obtrusive torture in recent years, but still are not tolerable for many. I have my patients try a small contraption that fits into the nostrils easily, and sometimes provides the slight increase in breathing passages that improves the sleep. The inserts can be found at www.proventtherapy.com http://www.proventtherapy.com GG Edit: I have nothing to gain here, just trying to help people out, perhaps this product is a good fit for your situation.
