Hey yall, im only 23 years old but recently got diagnosed with severe sleep apnea with an AHI at around 51. Im 6ft tall and around 225lbs with a good amount of it being muscle so im not in the worst shape, but also not in the best shape.

Im honestly a little scared of having to use a CPAP, knowing that it’s ultimately in my best interest. Not wanting to have to sleep with a CPAP every night, I was wondering if anyone had any experience with using a mouthguard on some rare occasions, and a CPAP for the majority of the time. Is it possible to use both of these together in conjunction some nights? And does anyone have any recommendations for good machines to get? The medical equipment company my doctor got me in contact with has yet to return any of my messages so im a little lost right now.
