SEE WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
I was at wits end with my snoring, rather my Ladyfriend wasn’t having any of it. My primary care referred me to a sleep study, an overnight monitored study, with a CPAP and enough electrodes to monitor the space shuttle! Sent home the next morning (5AM) with no sleep, although they said I did. The CPAP was extremely uncomfortable on the nose and upper lip. The report to my primary suggested a CPAP for my apnea and snoring. She suggested, hold on! I’ve got a suggestion. Sleep Matters has a device to alleviate snoring without all the pumps, hoses, noise and discomfort. I’ll try anything. Met with Dr. Goodwin shortly after. He explained the mechanics of the dental appliance to keep your jaw forward and your airways open, without the scuba gear of a CPAP! Was fitted for the appliance, received it about three weeks later. The angels sang, more importantly my Ladyfriend did also, and my nose did not!! If you’re getting the knee in the back or some other reminder of your nasal symphony, you’ve got to get to Dr. Goodwin ASAP. You won’t regret it, but more importantly your partner will love you for it!
Dr. Goodwin delivered, and I would recommend him to anyone with a snoring problem. This is why I saw him, and I have been told by my spouse that my snoring is substantially diminished. Dr. Goodwin has a great “bedside manner” to go with accomplishing what we both wanted to accomplish.
I am thrilled with the results of working with Dr Goodwin. My first 5 nights wearing the device left me feeling the most rested I had been in years. I felt 10 years younger. I am not exaggerating. I am 68. I had felt 78. With the oral device I felt like I was 55 again. Unfortunately, my right upper jaw (not the joint) was extremely sore and sensitive. I could barely chew in the morning and it didn’t improve much through the day. Dr Goodwin explained that my neck muscles were all involved in this problem. I took his advice and spent weeks with massage, chiropractic exercises and stretches. I wore the device as little as an hour a day and gradually built up to all night. I now wear it all night. I sleep deeply and awaken refreshed. All the relaxation I gained in my neck has also helped my insomnia and blood pressure. I’m thrilled. It did not happen overnight but it was worth the effort for the results. Don’t give up.
Thanks to Heather, too, for her understanding and encouragement.
