It has been an interesting experience this time as I had a little more knowledge of what to expect, but also found myself impatient when exactly the same side effects from the machine occurred.
I bought a used ASV machine after encouragement from various quarters, unfortunately I am one of those folks where the high pressure of the ASV just stops me getting restful sleep. But it was worth a shot and do not regret the experience.
Then out of the blue I got a call for a titration study, maybe some CPAP fairy saw my plight and intervened in the process, who knows how this system works. Anyway, I am set for a titration, I am getting through the days as best I can, some are better than others, but at least I am closer to finding out what is actually happening when air pressure is pumped up my nose.
Thanks for all the support and encouragement, I will be successful yet, even if it kills me, no wait...:-)
