Actually I think I may have it as well and I am not overwieght or anything else, for me my bottom jaw is set a bit further back then my top as I have an over bite, I believe it may temporarily close the airways when I sleep or even just the tongue being in the way too much, Doesn’t take specific things to have but it is easy to remedy
I like never feel fully awake no matter how much sleep I get when I first wake either and sometimes can feel tired throughout the day, not too effecting but definitely kind of a nag to have[/quote]
Pulse oxymeter and if you have it, have it treated.
Unless you are looking forward to the countless joys a stroke can bestow on you.
Or a heart attack.
okay maybe I should get it fixed, Getting a jaw surgery to correct my jaw, but will be good to get something done about it till then, Don’t want any of that especially at the age of 22 hahahaha
So you suggest getting a pulse oximeter to determine if it is dropping my oxygen levels and to go from there? Maybe I should see a sleep specialist hmm…
How do you know so much about it by the way?[/quote]
Because I had an AHI of 98.
That probably makes me the reigning champ of these here boards if not Europe.
As to the more practical issues, a jaw surgery is something that you might not need for OSAS.
A mouth piece that pulls your lower jaw forward could be all that you need and you are right, it would probably be your tongue getting in the way.
If you have a skeletal misalignment though I would look at studies concerning chances in life and facial anomalies long and hard and then I would sure as hell get it done.
If you have a skeletal structure that is class 2 or 3 and I dont remember what the overbite would be, well, you wont get laid nor get a decent job unless you are Steve Jobs.
