Common Questions and Answers about Throat exercises apnea


Avatar n tn It is less noticable in the day and the dry sore throat is gone. Could this be acid reflux? Throat Cancer?
Avatar n tn In the most common form of the condition - obstructive apnea (also called upper airway apnea) - air stops flowing through the nose and mouth, but throat and abdominal breathing efforts are uninterrupted. The snoring that results is produced when the upper rear of the mouth (the soft palate and the cone-shaped tissue - the uvula - that descends from it) relaxes and vibrates as air passes in and out. This sets up an air current between the palate and the base of the tongue, resulting in snoring.
Avatar n tn My throat feels tight constantly like my throat is dry with a lump in front and sometimes I wake up choking and gasping for air. What could it be?
Avatar f tn t have the typical sleep apnea characteristics with the exception that my jaw is very retracted and tongue restricted and my throat is very restricted. This he thinks would contribute to some apnea and that the sleep study should be able to determine some answers. In the meantime he told me to stop doing the jaw exercises the TMJ specialist had me doing which may have contributed to the throat and jaw restrictions.
Avatar m tn Snoring could be an indicator for Obstructive Sleep Apnea, wherein during sleep there is an obstruction to airflow due to laxity of the throat muscles during sleep and this could cause restlessness. To prevent snoring follow good sleep hygiene measures like going to bed at the same time, waking up at the same time, avoid smoking and caffeinated beverages. You could avoid taking alcohol and try to sleep on your side as this keeps the airways patent.
Avatar m tn Hi, Obstructive Sleep Apnea can cause constant dryness in the mouth. It can also occur due to snoring. Snoring by itself indicates a narrowed air passages. For snoring you could avoid taking alcohol and try to sleep on your side as this keeps the airways patent. If any nasal blocks try to keep them patent with OTC nasal decongestants. Aim for optimum weight with exercises or long walks. Regards.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and received one of those machines. Shortly afterwards I lost my insurance so I no longer can afford to go to the clinic. I was told I awake 120x a minute and snore so loudly the walls move inward and outward (nurse agreed with my wife). It went well for about 2-3 weeks when I realized I was removing my tube in my sleep. This went on for awhile till I was let go from my job and no longer had insurance. I could no longer afford to deal with the clinic.
Avatar n tn My throat seems to close when I am sleeping and I can't breath and I wake up immediately and drink water
Avatar n tn which is causing him to black out and fall to the ground...he also has sleep apnea but refuses to use the mask...wot is causing these black outs and is there anything we can do to prevent them....Please help as i am very worried..
Avatar f tn I suggest you follow-up with you sleep apnea team, and consider undergoing a formal or in-home sleep apnea test for more definitive diagnosis. The mandibular advancement device should help, as well as CPAP. The dental device pulls your lower jaw forward, which pulls your tongue forward. If you have a long wait, there are inexpensive low-tech boil and bite models that are sold over the internet for snoring, which does the same thing, but not as well as the formal device.
Avatar f tn If you have obstructive sleep apnea, your doctor may refer you to an ear, nose and throat doctor (otolaryngologist) to rule out any blockage in your nose or throat. An evaluation by a heart doctor (cardiologist) or a doctor who specializes in the nervous system (neurologist) may be necessary to look for causes of central sleep apnea.
Avatar f tn i suffer from sleep apnea and in the mornings i gag up blood with phlem like a thick paste i can not breath through my nose properly whats going on?
Avatar m tn ) can aggravate your obstructive sleep apnea. Are you being treated for sleep apnea? Most cases of chronic sore throat and hoarseness is from laryngopharyngeal reflux disease. You may need to talk to your sleep doctor.

So I waited for a couple days and thought I would wait and see if it went away. Well it didnt so I called my dr. I went in and he felt it, then he had another Dr come in that worked with an oral surgeon.
Avatar n tn I have been having cramping in my throat it feels like a charlie horse and it seems to be more on the right side. it last around 30 seconds and even happens in my sleep it wakes me up. it dose not happen when i am eating or swallowing my doctor has no idea what is causing this. i have sleepapnea and this is very scary. i know i have not pulled a muscle or yawn to make this happen. i hope you can help me or tell me where to look for help.
Avatar f tn You are probably experiencing sleep apnea. The muscles in the throat relax during sleep and if there is enough pressure around the throat this may lead to an obstruction of the respiratory pathway. This causes snoring or even pauses in breathing. This form of sleep apnea is called obstructive sleep apnea. People may experience this occationally, for example if they have an infection in the throat such as a cold.
Avatar m tn is it normal to have a hoarse throat with sleep apnea This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/284129'>4 weeks of hoarse voice, diagnosed as bronchitus--no improvement</a>.
Avatar m tn Hi, I think I suffer from mild sleep apnea and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations as to a different sleep position, any home remedies I could try? This has been going on for 2-3 years and I think I finally figured out why I have day-time sleepiness. It has been undiagnosed by my doctors because I do not fit the criteria. I am healthy, in shape, and young. Although, I know that you do not have to be overweight to have obstruction in your naso/oropharynx.
Avatar n tn My sore throat also comes after I eat or sit down for some time. Now it has been around 3 months but the sore throat continues. I am not sure if the exercises worsened the reflux or I contracted some other illness ( super bug or something ) that is affecting my throat.
Avatar f tn Silent reflux is a common cause of poor sleep and sleep apnea. GERD often goes hand in hand w/sleep apnea and disturbed sleep. Silent reflux usually has no symptoms other than poor sleep. Or you may experience sore, scratchy throat when you first waken in the morning or even during the night. Or maybe just some nausea or queasies when first waking or rising in the AM. I really wish that nausea or reflux could be included in the Sleep Tracker list. And even scratchy throat.
