What alternatives are effective for sleep apnea, besides CPAP?

Question by Tim D: What alternatives are effective for sleep apnea, besides CPAP?
I can’t afford a CPAP machine right now. Are there any other alternatives that help with sleep apnea? I’ve tried a dental device before, but it hurts my jaw and teeth too much. Surgery is also not an option right now due to the cost. Is there anything else that can be done? I’m trying to lose weight, so no need to tell me that, either.

There are NO other alternatives that will help other than weight loss and CPAP. You can get a CPAP quite inexpensively these days. Less than $ 500 to save your life is not too bad. Start saving if you don’t have insurance and don’t qualify for assistance. Also, if you can afford anything at all, you can RENT a CPAP. It isn’t cost efficient in thee long run, but in the short term it can help a lot. None of the other gimmicks will work. They are for normal snoring, not apnea. There is one alternative that can help if you sleep on your back.. for short term assistance until you figure out your machine options. get a towel and roll it and put it under your neck which will tip your chin towards the ceiling. If you can sleep like this, it will help. Not cure it or be perfect, but it will help.
