Hello Surfer Dude and sleep rider…
Dude the headache is more over my right ear and behind same area… I am going to guess that it is related to other things in my life right now… Chatting on the forum has sort of got me thinking in a new direction on that one… My sinuses are feeling pretty great on a 1 and 2 setting with no preheat. The preheat made me feel a bit too tropical for my Northern California bedroom… We already have 26- 30 inches of rain this year…very moist.
Sleeprider I asked for the respironics unit for that reason (thanks to this board). Soooo… as soon as the time is available I will immerse myself in the how to's of sleepyhead and becoming more informed… For now I am following orders from the doc and providers to get my machine from the insurance co… As well as being grateful to know it works as is and can only get better.
Opal Rose… Been doing a little reading on other threads about smells and it appears we are not alone with the extra or enhanced smells after mask removal… Several folks have notice being able to smell thing that the had not been able to smell prior to therapy and one smells things (manure) mid day ^_^ . I'll stick with the dusty smell or flowers for now thank you ^_^.
Thanks to all...
When you are in a totally dark room for awhile, and then someone turns on the lights, they dazzle you and seem very bright until your eyes adapt. Similarly if you are in total silence for awhile and then turn the stereo on at normal volume it seems much louder until your ears adapt. I imagine the same thing is true of our sense of smell. After breathing clean air for awhile, say by using a HEPA filter on your *PAP all night, it makes sense that smells you ordinarily never notice become suddenly evident.
Similarly those who quit smoking for awhile become aware of how bad smokers smell.

Actually you know, it is what it isn't.
