"Thing is, I'd have thought if there was evidence that exercises and things like singing had a positive effect on marginal cases, then you might not have to prescribe expensive and annoying equipment like CPAP machines so often. Ideally, I would…"

Kath Hope replied to John's discussion Getting a precise diagnosis - scans ?

Hi all, so, OK I got a diagnosis of OSA and was given a CPAP machine.Finding out exactly what the problem is has not proven so easy. By exact problem I mean what the structural problem in my throat is - small jaw, blocked nose, big tongue, fat neck - etc etc.My GP told me I had a big uvula, and polyps, and that's about it.Is there a way to maybe get a scan that a medic can point at and say, "this here is what's wrong" ? Maybe ultrasound scan ?thanksSee More
