"PAP fixes sleep disordered breathing and NOTHING else. If your sleep was bad for other reasons in addition to to the undiagnosed OSA prior to your starting PAP therapy, it's likely to remain bad once the PAP therapy properly manages your OSA.

So you need to think in terms of what else might be causing your sleep problems.

And you need to give yourself enough time to fully learn how to sleep well with the mask."


Thanks for this Robysue, I have had issues sleeping most of my life, so it seems I am finally having to deal with it...

I realize too that getting used to the mask takes time, I have surrendered to that one.....

I will work on the sleep hygiene diary....

Thanks again..
