Sorry, I forgot which Community I was on, I though from your post I was on the Respiratory Disorder Community. You may want to try that Community too.
I come to the Sleep Disorder Community because I suffer from trouble mares every night. This may be related to my congestion, but I don't know that.
As for high blood pressure, have you tried a beta blocker? I haunt Medhelp in the heart area too as I suffer from heart problems - yep I'm an old guy.
Thanks, for spelling out the letters. Upper Airway Restricted Syndrome sounds like what I may suffer from myself. Unfortunately I "hang" around this Community as a fellow sufferer, not a doctor or even patient with answers. Is the treatment of UARS limited to breathing aids, CPAP and similar? From what you posted I conclude you got relief since 2005 and have found you could get along with out using CPAP (isn't that just a compressor that puts a positive pressure into your mouth and nose?).
I suffer from a sinus congestion every night all year round but limited mostly to when I lie down to sleep Does that sound like a symptom of UARS? I have very little congestion when I am up and on my feet or even seated.
Not trying to hijack your thread, but my condition may offer some additional insight.
I have not yet consulted an ENT doctor, but I may.
Our discussion at least keeps your post on the top of the list.
Thanks Jerry, a great recommendation! UARS is the abbreviation for Upper Airway Restricted Syndrome and OSA for Obstructive Sleep Apnea - hope this helps with anyone's thoughts, experiences, or recommendations! Thanks for any help!
God Bless - Bert
The lack of response by others may be for the same reason I have passed you post up a couple of time: I don't know what UARS stands for, same for OSA. This may well mean I/we don't have knowledge/experience that would be helpful.
Just a thought, you may want to spell them out.
