My doctor gave me a referral to a specialist in Gosford, but it's impossible to find a park there, so I ignored it.

However, I often wake up tired, which isn't a good way to start the day.

The good news is that there are several alternative sleep apnea treatment options available to those who want to avoid wearing a mask as much as possible. Below, we've listed 5 alternatives.
The risks are heart attack and stroke. But I can't persuade my son even to UFS which has diagnostic clinics!
I dream, therefore I am.
