In my sleep study a few months ago, my untreated AHI was low 30s, RDI low 50s.
I'm wondering if I need APAP rather than CPAP, and I don't have a good handle on what the significance of RERAs are - if I'm having a lot of them and they're lasting 20-30 seconds, but CPAP doesn't do anything about them, what, if anything, should I do?

I'm still new enough to using SleepyHead that I don't have a really good understanding of what graphs I should be looking at. The ones I chose may be entirely the wrong ones.
Since starting CPAP therapy, my morning headaches are either gone or lots less severe than they used to be. I still feel tired in the mornings, but I have fibromyalgia and autoimmune arthritis, so I'm not sure what kind of improvement I can expect.
I did have a few days in early February where I would wake up with energy in the mornings but those have been rare.
I am still periodically having "freak-out" periods where I'm not using the machine for days in a row due to anxiety/claustrophobia issues, so those are the gaps you see after Feb 1. Before Feb 1, I was having issues with a reaction to the first mask I had and then nasal congestion (and anxiety/claustrophobia).
