I've actually read and heard from my Dr. that being heavier sometimes is a reason for sleep apnea. And that when you get a cpap mach. and start sleeping better; it's more likely that you would loose weight if anything. I would read up on it. And I'm just saying that this makes sense anyway. I would guess that it's from his recent increase in activity; that will do it!! Plus he is young. That helps. But, I'm glad the Dr. is involved!View Thread
I had the same problem with my mouth opening up. I just HAD to slowly increase wearing it for small amounts of time to get used to the full face mask. If you really want to make this work; you need to try different masks also, to see which one you like best. I go through Liberty by mail.They work with my Dr. and my insurance. And they let me try different masks and send back the ones that didn't fit my face right. They also have specialists that help figure out what's wrong. Hope this helps!View Thread
