Prior to wearing an oral appliance at night I developed an anxiety issue that mostly occurred while driving. Having an anxiety issue while driving limited my ability to drive myself almost anywhere. I was put on medication for my anxiety so that I could drive myself to and from work. Through many doctors’ visits to a variety of doctors, I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. I was originally provided CPAP and struggled with the use as I felt like I was being suffocated. In addition, I found out that my anxiety was coming from my feeling like I needed to fall asleep at the wheel of my car. After struggling with the use of CPAP for several months, a friend told me about an oral appliance that her husband was using. I looked on the Internet and found Dr. Le. Almost immediately after using my oral appliance I noticed an enormous difference in how I felt. I felt rested and had more energy. The feeling like I was going to fall asleep at the wheel was gone. Within six months of using my oral appliance, I was weaned off of my anxiety medication. Now that I am getting a good night’s sleep, I feel wonderful.
