I was diagnosed with sleep apnea about 2 months ago. After having impressions done, I received my SomnoMed oral sleep appliance 15 days ago. I felt a difference after the first night. For the past 5 years, I have been waking up tired, with a headache, and feeling un-energetic most of the day. This was very contrary to my first 35 years of life. I now know that this is due to low oxygen saturation and because my body could not get into REM sleep due to waking up so many times at night when I would stop breathing. After the first 2 weeks, I wake up feeling better rested, no headaches at all since I started and I am not getting tired during the day! I made my first adjustment last night. So, I realize that all things will only get better from here! I am excited to wake up even more well- rested and to have more energy throughout the day. Dr. Hart and Melanie have been a blessing to work with. Their knowledge of the process from the sleep study, impressions and maintenance and care, to billing have made everything a breeze. I work in the fire department with many guys who I suspect of having sleep apnea and I am recommending them to come to Dr. Hart to beging the process of having the sleep study done, and to push for getting the SomnoMed oral sleep apnea appliance. This device is changing my like back to what it used to be!!
