changed pressure question

RE: changed pressure question
So it looks like positional has creeped back in?  I have been sleeping on my side.  Can side sleeping cause this?  Maybe rolling onto my back?

So the best option is to use a soft collar?  If so, where to purchase?  

Should I use 1 or 2 pillows?

So frustrating this started after a year.

RE: changed pressure question
The new Soft Cervical Collar wiki is in my signature links. We are not concerned with what you buy, and it may take some experimentation to find what works best for you. In general, 1-pillow should be enough to support your head and neck comfortably. Excess height can cause the neck to flex which is the root cause of most positional apnea. Chin-tucking can occur on your side as well as your back, so the soft collar addresses both.

Thanks.  I ordered one to try.  Just really frustrating this started out of the blue again.  Had it in July and now.  Not sure what changed.
