I'm not sleeping on my back
#11
Thanks, Brendak. I have not explored getting a new pillow-
Think I'll look into that. I am very happy with the F&P Simplus-
I get minimal leaks.

For some people, sleeping in a recliner works better and won't increase your AHI like back sleeping in bed will.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

I start out sleeping on my back and then go to either side (until my wife tells me to switch sides). She is usually awake longer than I am so I can fall asleep with the TV on. Usually out within 5 or ten minutes of putting the mask on. And I am usually out for the majority of the night. What I really hate is when something wakes me up after about 20 minutes and I can't get back to sleep. So I end up getting up and doing something until I feel like I can go back to sleep. I think this 20 minute nap effect comes from my military time where I found I could take that quick 20 minute nap and then start up again.

BTW, my 30 day average for AHI is around 3 and I have looked at SH and can see the high points - most of which correspond to the times I know I am awake.
