Thank you for sharing your idea @SpringK359! We just started a new Suggestions & Ideas community today, so I’ve added your topic here to help share it with others. Thank you for being the first!

We don’t have plans to add a Sleep Issues Community just yet, but I’m happy to share that we do have a few topics in the community that are dedicated to sleep issues here:

I cant Sleep literally. I have PTSD,and i hate To tell, i unknowing hit my loving,wonderful hubby in my sleep. Yell out my sisters name (she pasted, we were so close we looked like twins! Sometimes i look in the mirror and see her, not me!) I have to stay up while everyone sleeps bc i feel weird. This is just the tip of everything. I wish i didnt dream, let alone remember every details of dreams. Sleep . i miss Sleep. I need sleep. Yes ive tried it all literally. Thats all i can say for now without tears.

My biggest problem is I have dry eye. My meds dry out my mouth and the CPAP although it has a humidifier my mouth is so dry it and my tounge hurt so bad all day. No amount of water ever makes it better.
I have tried Biotene and it has not helleped.

I received my Bipap after August diagnosis on October 11th right after my tonsillectomy on October 10th.
I was told nasal mask, I had been a mouth breather.
I recommend learning to close mouth no matter what mask. Also you can buy moisturizing mouth drops. Someone said Chapstick helps keeps lips moist & closed. I put my tongue to where I say ‘en’ keeps throat closed.
