"Sorry to head this Judy, and it could well be the fact that you're having to tighten the mask a little too much that's causing the jaw problems.  It could also simply be that the mask isn't suitable for you, so worth asking your…"

Sleep apnoea and TMJ

HiI have been using my cpap for about 20 months now. On the whole have got on with it reasonably well.About 6 months ago started to develop a clicking in my jaw (only on the right side) and sometimes could not open my mouth properly, It is quite painful and can last from a few minutes to all day. I did not associate my mask with this problem until recently. I had pain all day, and could not face using my mask that night. I didnt have pain the next morning or the rest of the day.

Judy Y replied to Judy Y's discussion Could I have developed Central Sleep Apnoea ?
"Thanks for your answer Kath. The app I have is Philips Dreamapper . It tells me minimum/maximam/ 90% pressure, My AHI and mask fit, Hours usage. I cant see anything about obstructive or centrals. Is my app out of date, or my machine?"

Kath Hope replied to Judy Y's discussion Could I have developed Central Sleep Apnoea ?
"I don't think those symptoms are specific to central sleep apnoea.  Your app should tell you if those apnoeas are obstructive or  centrals.  It sometimes says 'CA.'  Sometimes when people first wake it takes a…"

Could I have developed Central Sleep Apnoea ?

HiI was diagnosed with severe sleep apnoea Jan 2017 after hiring a device from Hope2sleep. Think I had this problem for around 10 years. I eventually got my cpap machine in August 2017. I have had a few ups and downs, and had my machine adjusted a couple of times. I get on ok with the full mask (except when it was very hot this summer, where a few nights I found that I had taken it off without knowing I did) Hospital said they were happy with me, and they have me down for a yearly…See More

I hired a sleep apnea test from hope 2 sleep in January this year, and it showed I had severe sleep apnea. My GP finally believed me and refered me to a hospital sleep clinic, which I attented in April.I have an appointment in August to collect my first cpap machine.I wanted to ask can sleep apnea affect muscle strength?  Last November I got back pain, which I managed for a few days, but then had to stop work, but it still got worse and took painkillers for it . The pain subsided after a couple…See More
