The unit came with a Swift mask but no extra nostril things . I just went and got a resmed N10 and its not to bad might pick up an F10 for when have stuff nose have some allergies and find the N10 can get a bit uncomfortable sometimes as currently have a pretty thick mustache.
I didn't actually have my machine set professionally guess should but anyway its auto of course and min is set at 7 and max at 11 presently. I just figured out how to reset my sleep data recording few minutes ago and will look at my AHI and all that and see how the current settings are working for me. Its set as said to auto mode.
Have figured out most everything on the machine and been reading a lot online and watching youtube videos and now found this form.
Oh am pretty overweight even though been doing quite a bit of exercise but guess still eat way too much. Weigh 242 presently. Am 5ft 6 heavy frame.
I have noticed a good increase in energy since started using the CPAP been about week now using it. Unfortunately I threw out my back about second day started using it so can't really test out my new energy too much. Also my mind seems to be working better as well.
I would say not so sleepy in daytime but been taking muscle relaxants for my back so they make me sleepy but should be done with them soon and again think will see a big difference. One of the scariest symptoms was when driving on long highway trips would nod off even when had 8 or more hours sleep the night before. I would chug down 5 hour energy shots and they helped a lot but this was a dangerous condition of course.
Also think had/have some other symptoms from the apnea that hopefully will get better now that doing the CPAP.
I am hoping to drop a bunch of weight and maybe can get off the CPAP in the future. Reading conflicting stuff about gaining/losing weight after the CPAP therapy.
Sure have some questions but will be reading thru the board and looking at hold posts, searching ,etc which is answering most of my questions.
