Thanks, OP, for giving ideas on switching to side sleeping from back sleeping. I've tried side sleeping so many times but just get huge discomfort everywhere (everywhere... bent, twisted & squished). Physically, the backside seems generally flat which works for a flat bed; whereas one's side seems the opposite. For me, it's like saying that my sleep apnea will be reduced by standing on my head. If I get one of foam toppers one day, I'll definitely be trying again on side sleeping.
Sleep Apnea has given me a terrible memory. Please forgive me if I've repeated myself.
Same thing here. I was averaging an over 2 ahi peaking at 10 when i got on my back. Sleeping with a backpack made it drop to 0.7. I could't stand the backpack for a long time so i got rid of it and the numbers went up again. But i may try this pillow position.
Thanks for the tip.
I have slept largely on my back for the 18 years I have done CPAP. The machine does the rest.
