[Equipment] F20 Cushion

However, as for over tightening, then in my opinion, that means it isn't the right mask for you. CPAP and masks aren't required to be completely void of discomfort, but to add pain...then something is wrong with your "package".

Thank you. That's what I'm leaning towards but my problem is that my DME has a policy of letting only you try one extra mask then you have to pay for them. I think that is ridiculous but its the only one my insurance will deal with so I'm stuck with them. This is going to be very interesting to say the least when I make this phone call

RE: F20 Cushion
I had to get various sized cushions over the allowed supply timing so my insurance would cover. And yes DME interactions probably add to head and stomach aches in most cases. I think it was written in DME Rule section IIX subsection 2 that it must be that way. Smile Best to ya on it.

Hahaha, thank you. I have a feeling I’m going to make someone’s day with the phone call I’m about to make lol. 

P.s. Thank god for your screen name cause I wouldn’t have known that you were joking at this point in my treatment.

I wouldn't be too surprised though if there's a bit of truth in it. Anyway I really do hope you get the cushions or other mask you need. Feel free to keep up on the updates. I found it helped me on improving my therapy by "checking in".
