I am still snoring. I'm currently on 11. I'm going to change the pressure setting to 12 tonight. Could I safely go to 13 if I wanted to experiment?
When I take naps during the day I use my CPAP machine, and find I drift off to sleep only to "snap out of it" into a state of sleep paralysis. I'm pretty sure I'm breathing okay, but I can't seem to wake my body up. I find myself trying desperately to kick my feel and move my arms, and only relax again when I have regained control of my body.
I had sleep paralysis before CPAP.
Am I more relaxed and sleeping deeper now, thereby making the sleep paralysis more evident? Is this a sign of having central apneas brought on by the machine? Or do I worry too much?
I am thinking of MORE pressure right now. I'm still waiting on the results of the FINAL sleep study when I went in, they monitored and titrated my pressure to find out the FINAL number. In the meantime, the Respirologist took the APAP data to give me my tentative permanent pressure of 11. I know my AHI was improved a LOT from readinf the APAP data with SleepyHead software, but I was still snoring a lot.
Any advice or ideas are greatly appreciated.
