RE: I HAD A DREAM!!!
Greetings 2tired2sleep,

I had not had any dreams that I could remember for years prior to my APAP. Once I got my APAP I started remembering, probably started having, dreams. Wonderful experience!

OK, not all dreams are "happy", but just to know that I was having REM sleep was great news. And, Sleepyhead software backed up my perception of the decrease in apnea events.

RE: I HAD A DREAM!!!
I have always had dreams. Sometimes good, sometimes not so good, sometimes a little goofy (don't know where those come from).

But recently I was on Hydrocodone for a couple of weeks due to a puppy inflicted injury. Man, the dreams I had when I took one of those things before going to bed? Too weird, even for Payton.

I finally quite taking that stuff anytime after 7:00 pm until the next morning.

That's awesome that you are dreaming now. I still haven't gotten there. People don't believe me, but it's just a blank period of time for me.

I have really weird (normal) dreams since starting cpap.... all jumbled and bizarre. I used to dream "coherently" whole stories that made sense. Guess I was half awake that whole time!

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Sorry to hear that you had a "wiped out" day. I am wondering if you had a mask leak during the night - that would certainly be a cause for a wiped out day.

May I assume you are washing the mask daily and cleaning your face before you put the mask on? I have found this makes a big difference in comfort and effectiveness.

I noted that software you are using is ReScan - personally, I much prefer Sleepyhead software. To me, it is more understandable and the info is much more evident.

Hey Doubletired, sorry you had a crummy night. You'll have good nights and crappy nights. But the good news is you'll have way more of the good variety than the crappy variety.

When I get one of those, I go "back to the basics:" Are my leak numbers ok? Not zero, just not in the goofy range. Some leakage is very normal and expected. Very low, or zero leakage can be attributed to a two tightly screwed on mask, which can cause headaches, being wiped out, etc.

Eyes burning? Could be leakage. You'll have a better understanding about that when you really spend some quality time diagnosing your night.

What about the events themselves? I look at ahi, but if I really want to understand something I look at what kind of events, when they happened, were they spaced throughout the night or grown in cute little gardens... that sort of stuff. Then I look to see why they are doing what they're doing. Once again leaks, or lack of leaks could be a contributor.

Finally, if everything else looks great, maybe I need to investigate the pizza I ate shortly after putting on my mask. Or my sleeping position. Or both.

You'll be fine, for me almost invariably after I had one of the crappy sort of nights I follow it with a great one.

RE: I HAD A DREAM!!!
@ the magician - so, you are saying that you really do not recall if you have had a dream in the last 5 years using your S8, and now with the past few days with the S9?

otherwise, are you feeling better now that you switched for this trial/titration period?
