Odd tips for a better sleep
I thought it would be fun and helpful to start a thread for those odd personal discoveries of ways to have a better sleep with xPAP.

I'll be first. I always wake up after about 2.5 hours of going to sleep. However, if I eat a CHEESE SANDWICH just before bed time, my first sleep shift almost doubles to about 4.5 hours. I haven't found that with any other food.

Have you got something unusual that's helped you have a more successful xPAP night?

Sleep Apnea has given me a terrible memory. Please forgive me if I've repeated myself.

My treat is thick layer of peanut butter on whole wheat WASA cracker. Read about this combo somewhere. Works for me...before bed!
