RE: CPAP and sensory processing disorder
I have some sensory stuff, my DS has the full DX. I use the Swift FX. It drove me crazy at first due to the sensory stuff. The biggest thing for me was making a firm choice when I started this that I would not sleep without the APAP. I knew I would have a hard time and still occasionally do, but the harm it causes me if I don't use APAP, is just not OK.
In the beginning, I put everything on and watched TV for a while with it on until I couldn't stay awake any longer. Yes, I woke up several times a night at first feeling irritated and suffocated. I only took things off to go to the bathroom. I went to the bathroom a lot, LOL. But, it did get easier and I only occasionally wake up with it driving me crazy.
DS has his sleep study next month, he's 13. I hope he doesn't need APAP, but with our family history, most likely he will. We've been talking about why I have to wear my mask. Hopefully, it will help.
Don't give up, your health is too important.
