34 years of age, never have slept well. I've had two nose surgeries now, both a septoplasty and rhinoplasty - my nose is not the issue. I currently use a CPAP machine, which is telling me I'm getting 0.0 - 1.0 events per hour.
Great news, right? Not so! I have a weak stomach, and the air makes me gassy, I get joint pain when I wake up. Further, any time I lie on my back, the need to urinate happens. I start on my side, then roll over and eventually I wake up two or three times to hit the can.
I've tried pillows and makeshift belts, no dice. Tennis balls and the like cause my sciatica to go crazy the next day, so that's off the table.
In two weeks I should get a call to set up a consult with a sleep doctor, which will then take place in a while after.
Any ideas how I can stop rolling over onto my back?
