My husband has sleep apnea and wears a C-Pap mask. I sure wish they'd been available years ago so I wouldn't have had so many snore-filled sleepless nights! (Luckily, his apnea is mild, but his snoring was wall-shaking!) His doctor said that not only did his overweight contribute to the problem but also the shape of his palate. Surgery could correct that, but it seemed too extreme a solution to us! We're both sleeping better nowadays.
