Mask [for side/stomach sleeping]
#1
I have sleep apnea along with restless leg syndrome. So I flop around in bed. I am primarily a side/ stomach sleep. I have tried the Quatro Fx full face mask, the Opus 360, the Dreamwear, as of now using the AIRFIT P10. I like the P10 but wish it has longer nasal pillows like the Opus 360. But the Opus mask too hard for sleep on side/stomach..anyone ever find a good mask for side sleeping

Hi Koyl59,
The P10 is the most minimalistic mask for side sleeping. You may be using the wrong size pillows. They should not insert into the nostril too far, but just a tiny bit and mostly rest under the nostril.
Try one size larger nasal pillow.

Others find that side sleeping with any mask requires you to sleep with your head close to the edge of your pillow with the mask hanging off the side.
