Thanks for feed back. I find your empathy really helpful and comforting and I will definitely try the dry mouth and nasal sprays.

My name is John Wilkinson. I am 60 years old and I have recently been diagnosed with severe SA. I believe I have suffered for years with this condition. I am fairly fit and active and not overweight, but I do have an unusually…"
"It is the specially made plugs that beats us from making a power supply with all the protection built in.
Where do you get a plug that looks like that. If it is a NHS machine you dare not change anything, and if it is one you bought you have…"
