[Diagnosis] swelling about the eyes
swelling about the eyes
Hi - my first post.

I've been using my cpap machine now for the last 3 months and analyzing the data vigorously with sleepyhead. My AHI is around 5 pressure at 12 with all numbers improving progressively month by month and feeling better and sleeping this has been a life saver, but, within the last 2 weeks I have been experiencing swelling under my eyes never before experienced - some sort of edema. I am otherwise healthy with no allergies etc. Any answers or possible causes related to cpap? This is a real problem. Thanks.

RE: swelling about the eyes
I am a newb also, but thanks to the fine folks here at Apnea Board things are working for me too.  BUT some mornings I cannot open my eyes, they are stuck shut, With my fingers I open them and use eye drops and all is well.  So, I think it is the air coming from the exhale of the mask and blowing to the eyes, I have changed the vent to blow downward (hose up over the head instead of down to the chest.)  It is somewhat better this way.  Keep us informed

the swelling goes away after 30min from getting out of bed.
