When I started (a week ago) turning on the machine made breathing feel like labor, inhaling was "too easy" and exhaling required effort. By the time I got up in the morning I could barely tell if the machine was running (other than the change in sound as I breathed in and out. I would often open my mouth for a second to feel my cheeks inflate just to make sure the pressure was still up. It felt as if the pressure was way too low.
Now a week later, I have turned off the ramp and EPR and when I turn on the machine I can barely notice the added pressure, when I get up it feels exactly like the machine has turned off. The machine is not off (I can test it by inflating my cheeks) but I can't feel it at all when breathing. Breathing just feels normal.
Is this normal at 10 with a FFM (F10) in just a week?
