Sleep apnea mild - moderate

I have been Dx with Sleep apnea mild - moderate. I used a CPAP for a while but found it difficult to use customize mouth device followed by a sleep study. The sleep study show 90% effectivenss however each night I am awake after 2-3 hours of sleep and wake up with numbness in my right arm. Is 90% effectiveness OK or am I awake and experiencing the numbness due to reduced oxygen to my brain? I worry about stroking.

Best to consult with your doctor about the specific numbers. As for numbness, could it be due to sleeping position? Have you tried to change positions?
