Hi All

I had been suffering from migraines and TMJ since 2008. Finally in 2018 I was diagnosed with UARS. I tried everything from nasal dilators to MAD devices and then I started doing radio and laser therapy on my soft plate and nose (its very narrow and I weigh 56 KG). Anyways finally in September of 2019 I started CPAP- it was like a miracle my migraines went down from daily to like twice a month. my fast heart rate and irritability went away. My pressure was at 5-12. Also I was on Nexium for severe LPR about 40 twice daily. I take melatonin and Claritin but when I started getting better I stopped the Claritin and went down on the melatonin (was feeling still perfect) then went off the Nexium end of November.. In January my symptoms returned full-fledged. I wondered if it was due to the LPR contributing to the apnea or vice versa so went back on it just right now. suddenly nothin is working. I use the4 dreamer pillow tried switching to a full face mask for few days I felt worse and then I switched to nasal pillows which seem to be fine but my symptoms are not goin away. Please help!

What AHI are you getting, and what is the breakdown of AHI to clear airway vs obstructive? Has there been any change over this time?
