I have tried everything...started using cpap and the noise kept me awake and if that wasn't annoying enough, the cold air from the mask made my face so cold I would take it off. About a year ago I started doing research and found a specialist and went ahead and had surgery. This included having my tonsils removed, palate shaved and hole drilled in my chin so they could pull the tongue forward. I was told he had a 95% rate of curing SA. Well, that didn't work, and I was given some other options, so I went with Tongue radiation therapy (very painful) and still didn't work. I now sleep with a mouth piece that fits in your mouth and that seems to be helping for the time being. I am determined to beat this thing but still very frustrated that I was willing to go through extremes and nothing has worked.
