I have not used my cpap machine in over a year is there any way it could cause any pain in my shoulder and/or neck pain. also I was going to start using it, But I feel like I don't get enough air to breath. (it has been unpluged all this time could it have lost its setting.

G'day kaustin6, welcome to Apnea Board

I wouldn't normally expect a CPAP to cause neck or shoulder pain. It's conceivable that wearing the mask might cause you to sleep in an uncomfortable position which might put some strain on your neck or shoulder.

As for the other questions. It's really hard to advise you without knowing the make & model of your machine or your settings. Please fill in your profile to help us help you.

Hi kaustin6, welcome to Apnea Board.

I wouldn't expect the machine to forget it's settings from being without power for a year or three.

It is common to feel uncomfortable if the Pressure or Start Pressure is too low, such as less than 6 or 8.

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

Check your post history (found here). I think you put it in another thread called "Still Tired".
