... As for the itchy nose, maybe you should start using a humidifier? ... (4 replies)
... I have the sam eitchy nose problem. I have been sleeping with a cpap for about 9 months now. I was drinking an access of 45 oz of coffee a day. I would stop breathing an average about 57 times an hour. ... (4 replies)

... Thanks. I"ll try to go see one today. (8 replies)
