I was diagnosed last September, I used my resmed auto set off and on. I have tried two masks and they both have their shortcomings. I have been using my mask religiously since January 7th. I have yet to be able to sleep a full night with mask on, most of the time I use for 3 to five hours and then I feel the need to take it off. Going over my results, when I take it off, normally the pressure is around 18. Not only does this wakes me up, but it gives me a claustrophobic feeling. I know that there is allot of air being pumped but for some reason when it gets that high, I feel like I cannot breath.
I tried adjusting my settings today, we will see if it helps but I set the machine two digits bellow my 95 percent and a max of 17. I want to see if I am able to sleep through the night. The weird part is that based on my results the pressure for the most part continues to get higher as the night progresses. It is a steady climb until it gets to the point that I wake up due to the amount of air. What should I do? Anyone experienced a similar problem? I started a diet three days ago and I am doing my part to loose some weight. I am 5' 10'' and weight about 235 pounds.
