I started wearing a dental appliance for mild sleep apnea about a month ago. So far, I'm waking about every 2 hours (not sure why) throughout the night. The doctor has instructed me to "advance" the appliance only slightly. Also, my eyelids and under my eyes are swollen. Am I the only one? What is the relationship between the appliance and edema?

Thanks. Wendy
