Change settings-worse or dangerous?
(I’ve been on CPAP for five years with little to no success)

Most masks fail due to leaks.

After seeing a sleep technician... she advised me to change my settings. I have a auto CPAP or BiPAP machine with Settings from 4 to 12.

 She said to change the settings To 12-15.  She said Maybe higher pressures move mask.  I m trying it.

Yes this has fixed some of the leak problem,  but Now I wake me up multiple times in the night .

 Is this change really helping or could it even be dangerous ?

Tried numerous face masks...no good ...is changing right?  If not what do I do about leaks?  It’s not leaking  when I put it, but leaks severe for months,  according to data.  

If this is right change for settings- why am I waking up.
