RE: Help ! Feel like im going backwards and bad sleep is returning
It appears frequent large leaks and some flow limits are part of the issue. I think especially large leaks will derail the therapy.

It may help to just add OSCAR shots via F12 and use Add Attachment at the bottom of the post. It appears some detail of the chart is missing when I tried to zoom in to see it.

RE: Help ! Feel like im going backwards and bad sleep is returning
Your pressure is driven up by flow limits which can be a problem if your primary events (both apnea and hypopnea) are not obstructive. In fact as there are also pressure spikes in your charts that cannot be explained by either flow limits, apneae or hypopneae (for instance the pressure spike at 5:15-5:15 of the 6/1 chart) I suspect your AS10 is not reacting properly. I would suggest you run in CPAP mode (fixed pressure) starting at 7 or 8 for a few days and gradually increase pressure until you reach a sweet spot. This should also improve/resolve your leaks which are driven by pressure spikes.

Have you replaced the cushion recently? Or alternately; is it worn out? Is the cushion misaligned? Some of the questions that comes to mind.

The leaks you are showing in the latest are mostly Mask leaks, it will take some time to look at the others.

Your large leaks, while a mix of both mask leaks and mouth breathing they are mostly mouth breathing, the minor leaks look like mask leaks.
Did you just undergo a weather change that mad you more congested?
