    I don't have any magical answers, but I'm wondering if you still have the head of your bed elevated. I had my Nissan done over 15 years ago and am just starting to have what I think may be new symptoms, but they so subtle in comparisson to my original symptoms, I'm not sure. If you're that uncomfortable, a second opinion is always an option.
