Gary, if your machine is cranking away at 20 regularly, then you probably should have a bilevel machine that is capable of reducing pressure significantly during the exhale phase. Your machine can provide up to 3 cm of exhale pressure relief (EPR). We really need to to download SleepyHead and get a handle on what your settings are, and why are they set that way. Is this 20 cm pressure something that was titrated in a sleep study, or are you using a machine with open settings?

The feelings of not exhaling completely or feeling overly stimulated by CPAP pressure do go away. Our concern is whether your settings are optimized to your needs and to help you find greater comfort. You're going to have to help us, to help you, by giving some information on settings, and therapy efficacy...post some charts. My signature links describe how to do this.
