Chin strap did not work for me in the past but soft cervical collar did so I might add that back into my regimen if things do not improve. Am hoping for the most simple set up possible so I don't feel like a creature from outer space.

Biotene gel at bedtime helped me a lot with dry mouth when I was using a FFM.
Thanks Pupcamper.

RE: please advise re:leaks
Maybe I am one of the lucky ones. The chinstrap was OK but the collar works very well.

I had a major mask leak a couple of days ago and my machine handled it so it might be worth looking at the data.

I am trying to train my brain to use the tongue at the roof of the mouth technique while I am sleeping. I'm finding that I'm doing this during the day now as I occasionally notice my heavy nose breathing. So maybe that's worth a try as well.
