Last two weeks I noticed my AHI going up into the 6/7 range I had a mask that was leaking and I replaced it but last 3-4 days my AHI Went up to 8.8 , I had headaches in the mornings, sandy dry eyes, sleepiness..
I went to the doctor for a physical and mentioned to him, he checked in my nose and said i had something deviated that could be contributing to my breathing problems so i have a referral to the throat and nose clinic to see if theres any recommendations they may have.
When i put my SD Card in the sleepyhead program I was surprised and concerned about the multiple Central Apneas i had in clusters, my pie chart was in equal thirds, oa, ca, hypo. and being the paranoid guy i ame I started wondering if my problem was central.
I watched this video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3L2KoS7LCuI and it helped me realized centrals are not my case so I just moved my cpap next to my living room couch and slept last two nights sitting down, even do is uncomfortable my AHI went down to 4.0 and a few are false positives.
So it appears my problem is the position i sleep in, i tried the side but no help, the only thing that works gor me is sitting up.
my question is: does anyone here have the same issue? how do you manage? buy an adjustable bed? or is there some sort of pillow that works?
