I am new here and just wanted to say hi.
I used to go to bed feeling tired, then would wake up absolutely exhausted the next morning. I started sleeping with a CPAP two days ago and it's definitely a different experience. I noticed a slight improvement in my sleep in the two nights I have used it so far; I feel a little more rested and can get up quickly compared to before using a CPAP machine.
I do have one concern. I noticed I breathe through my mouth during sleep, and despite mentioning this when getting my CPAP, I was still given the nasal pillows. I gave it a shot but noticed anytime my mouth opens during sleep, I'll be awoken by a hissing sound of the air rushing from my nose out of my mouth. I also notice I have extreme dry mouth because I can't seem to keep my mouth closed. Should I see about getting a jaw strap to keep my mouth shut?
I can only imagine how much better it would feel if I didn't wake up at all.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post!
