Hey medhelp community, recently while sleeping it was bought to my attention that during my sleep i make a strange moaning noise. It would appear that this resounds for the entire time i sleep and while i'm half asleep have noticed something much like this myself. I wonder what i can do to contain and indeed stop this issue from continuing as it is rather embarrassing and so ask for any help you can give me in this issue and thank you for your help in advance.
I suffer from the same thing, it's really not as rare as people think (I've probably found a hundred other sufferers online by now). I've had it for 15 years, but only found out it had a name and that I wasn't the only one in the world about a year ago.
Yes, it is incredibly embarrassing and frustrating. It has affected my relationships, vacation plans, business trips, and more. I would give ANYTHING to not have to deal with it. I've had sleep studies, tried the CPAP (horrible, don't bother), surgery (didn't work for me) and an oral appliance (didn't work either). I question whether those people in the study were really "cured".
This condition *****, but we're all hoping that by putting our heads and experiences together, we can find a solution. Please join us at the Yahoo group, catch up on the posts, and (if you'd like) even participate in the discussion? It has been fairly active and it's extremely interesting (and oddly reassuring) to know we are not alone...
