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.
