You still have all sorts of stuff that should clean up nicely with a little more pressure, except that the machine is at it's upper limit most of the time.

You're doing pretty good, but there's no reason to settle unless you can't make it any better.

This was the first night on this setting. I have an appointment with the Dr. mid-October. I will let things settle for a few nights. After all, I have had the machine less than a week. I'm just glad I caught that the original setting was wrong. That gave me a horrible few nights. I've had a stressful day today. I expect I will be a bit restless tonight. THe numbers probably won't improve much.

Thanks for the suggestion though. I wonder if the doc would let me email them this info... hmmm...

Honestly I have seen alot of people talk here and few changes are better for you, you made the big change now live with it 5 or 7 days and then see what it says. The numbers are pretty good and may just improve by themselves, give it a bit. Just my pennies worth.

I second that!

These guys here have been very helpful indeed.

I usually don't want to be a part of any group that would have me as a member but here I feel differently. Usually I just feel with my hands, but not here.

RE: Getting worse - The Great Nap of Mutiny
Way to go, LJ. I would also leave the settings alone for a few nights, but I also wouldn't be surprised to see you/your doctor eventually decide to increase the low and the high by about 1 or 2 cms. But I agree with those who suggest you leave the settings alone and just collect the data for a few nights and see what the numbers look like.
