My insurance paid for a home sleep test, then a "trial" with the machine I'm using now. So I'm not sure what my initial AHI was (I have a followup appointment in a few weeks). But these first few nights have gone well despite having an annoying dry cough leftover from a respiratory bug. AHI was 0.11 the first night, 0.44 the second, and 0.1 last night. The last two nights I've been so comfy with the machine, I woke up a couple of times fearing I'd accidentally turned it off in my sleep! (I hadn't.)
My question is: Is it normal to feel more sleepy when first starting treatment? I feel like I want to sleep all.the.time because honestly, I'm already sleeping so much better! I understand that years of awful sleep will take some time to correct, but I'm actually looking forward to bedtime now...but also look forward to a decrease in daytime sleepiness, of course.
I appreciate all the great advice I've already seen on the board. Looking forward to getting to know you all.
