Feeling Sleepy
my first week on the cpap was a raging success except for one night that i couldn`t get a proper seal on my mask.woke up feeling on top of the world with energy to burn.turned the machine up from 7cm to 8cm when my wife complained of me snoring one night,no snoring since.

now into the second week, i`m waking up tired & have bugger all energy.anyone have suggestions as to what`s going on ?

many thanks
jason

RE: Feeling Sleepy
Jason, it happens to most people normally it is only one or two days, it is because you have been so sleep and oxygen deprived you get the sudden burst of oxygen you body has been craving. Lots of people get it straight after the tritation as well. Now you body is starting to heal, it will come back over time as long as you stick with it, it took me about 3 months to feel it fully. I still occasionally have times when I feel tired during the day even after 2years of CPAP but you have to keep telling yourself how bad it was before you started CPAP and you have had a taste of how good it will be, don't panic and just keep doing what your doing.

RE: Feeling Sleepy
thanks for the reply tez,i do have other contributing factors,cystic fibrosis,which sleep apnea is very common in & i have been battling poor health since february.

i just found it very unusual to feel better straight away & then feel like crap the second week.

i will definitely be sticking with it

RE: Feeling Sleepy
What F&P machine are you using? you can monitor your own data with data capable machine and will gives you and your doctor an idea if the therapy is optimal or any adjustment is needed

I didn't realise you had other illness's and needed titration, something else may come of that possibly your pressure may need raising, keep us updated.

RE: Feeling Sleepy
will do tez.i`m interested in getting the results of the titration to see if any changes are needed.

the cystic fibrosis mainly affects the lungs so any help they can get from the cpap is a bonus
