IMO jaswilliams is describing tongue trick evidence w/o knowing it

funny thing we all can do that stuff w/o mask, then we mask on and what we do automatically gets automatically forgotten

I tried mouth taping cervical collars etc and I was happier and slept better with a few leaks with no additional clutter over time I learnt to keep my mouth shut

Good to know. Did you do any of the tongue exercises or anything else to get that end result?

No it’s just about getting used to the pressure and developing the reflex I can now talk and drink with the machine on and my P10 nasal mask in place I can’t say how I do it it’s just been learnt over time I still get the odd mask movement leaks but nothing that’s adversely affecting my therapy

Good for you, and nice to know that it was perhaps merely having a clear intention and "time."

Dave,

It’s not the tongue trick as it’s the closing of my soft pallet as I can stick my tongue out and not let air escape so has no relationship to tongue position

Oh OK, it just sounded the same as an automatic tongue trick seal.
