Was recently diagnosed with mild sleep apnea after having a at home study which showed I had a AHI ~7, a total nadir oxygen saturation of ~86%, and 68% snoring for the whole night. From personal experience I'm maybe a little groggy the first part of the day and have occasional headaches but don't really have bad symptoms like falling asleep at the drop of a hat or being super tired through out the whole.
The sleep center is pushing me to go the CPAP route, but offhandedly suggest maybe looking into the oral appliance route or trying positional therapy first. Additionally I'm probably about 40 lbs overweight so I think simply losing the weight could help quickly too as a few years ago when I weighed less I had no symptoms of sleep apnea.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated going forward.
