RE: Extreme Headaches.
As far as being cured, it's probably not likely. Regarding the headaches have you:
1.) been to the doc
2.) has testing for trigeminal neuralgia
3.) been screened for a nasty sinus infection

The way you describe the headaches, I would start there. Best of luck to you!

Since my problems started a couple of yrs ago I have been encountering the Headache issues but of late they have gone almost unbearable (Last 3 weeks or so) every morning the pain starts on my face , where the FFM sits and then goes to the forehead and then the whole had. does stay pretty much the whole day and eases up in the evening .I have brought my Auto pressure down just to see if the high pressure was causing it. Not big difference. One thing I noticed that the AHI did not go up at all even at a pressure of 9. & even then the events were central instead of Obstructive.

Question is can CPAP pressure or a FFM mask trigger Headaches ?

I am going to go 2 night without the machine just to see if it will make any difference. Unfortunately my sleep doctor is useless and I have given up on him completely a few months ago.

Hi , this is my first attempt to ask the same question -can CPAP pressure or a FFM mask trigger Headaches ?
2 days after using CPAP I have started getting headaches and still continue to get them after 10 nights on the machine .
Do not have major health problems so not sure why I'm getting
them . Any suggestions or explanations would be much appreciated
