I really do like my doc. He is former military, he does a good job of listening, and I don't find that he is dismissive. For me, it has been sorting through everything to decide what to talk to him about--or point out.
We agreed changing too many variables at once wouldn't tell us what worked or didn't. We agreed I'd finish titrating off a sleep med I have been on for 25 years, I'd try a new mask, and we try a teensy 1cm H20 EPR, then wait a month and consider a small bump in minimum pressure if I still think I need it. Doc knows I can get into the clinician menu to adjust and that did not seem to be a big problem.
Then it was off to the devil--err I mean durable medical equipment company. I bought an Amara View mask and will give that a try for a month. Seems like a good idea with allergy season looming here in Ohio.
Bottom line...feeling more empowered and not giving up
Thanks for listening.
