  1. Why is so little attention being payed to the fact that sleep apnea is a neurological disease, while so much attention is placed on secondary influences of airway obstruction? Shouldn’t we put more emphasis on finding a way to eliminate the disease altogether?

  2. I aam 61 yrs old, male very thin and have Fibromyalgia and CFIDS for 30+ years. I have a diagnoses of OSA for about 15 years ( base line test 10 yrs ago apnea index of 38). I have chornic nasal congestion, had septoplasty and turbinectomy and need further sinus surgery to open a closed and infected sphenoid sinus but am too weak and fatigued to go through it for now I failed repeatedly with CPAP due to aerophagia and difficulty with mask sealing on my very thin face. Nasal pillows don’t work well with my nasal congestion. I have found that every new injury and surgery becomes a new place of chronic pain so I have avoided OSA surgeries. I have severe TMJ syndrome so I have struggled with a dental appliance although it does help a lot with the OSA. My doctor offers nothing else now but jaw surgery or tracheostomy. I am so fatigued I had to retire early. Any other options to help the OSA?
