About 3 weeks into this whole CPAP thing and I'm finding it worse than not using anything at all! So absolutely tired today and was swallowing air and expelling it in every way possible through at least some of the night and morning.
For my first 2 weeks I was on auto set from 6 to 13 but after a followup visit I was set to 8.6 fixed with a 20 minute ramp up from 6. During that time I also switched from an Eson to a Airfit F10 which seems to work much better.
Ramp on or off doesn't seem to make much difference, but I do find that I'm swallowing air regularly. I tried adding an extra pillow to raise up a little and that helps somewhat. But not a whole lot. And I'm definitely not keen on the 'trick' of leaning my head forward.
My CPAP clinician (Aussie equivalent of DME) says it'll just take some weeks to get used to it. But with work being quite demanding at the moment, it's driving me nuts!
What do I do to speed up this process, if it will even work for me at all? I don't think I'm too bothered by the actual wearing of the mask, it's sort of comforting. Right now it's this swallowing air thing that's getting to me.
