I got diagnosed with an AHI of 70. Although I'm not sure if the study was correct. The sleep study person had me sleep in my back without CPAP. Then she had me sleep on my back with CPAP full mask. I couldn't sleep. Then I tried the nose mask and couldn't sleep. Finally she let me sleep on my side and I slept for a few hours.
I told her afterwards that the nose piece and sleeping on my side seemed to work best. She said she thought I slept better on my back with the full mask. This made me think she was full of it, because I never slept during that time. I just had my eyes closed.
Anyway, I am pretty skeptical about a CPAP helping with anything. I didn't have symptoms as far as I can tell. I'm not sleepy during the day. I don't feel tired. I don't usually even need coffee to wake up. I don't have issues falling asleep. I am a light sleeper if there is noise or light in a room. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure a few years ago, but am taking medication for it. I'm overweight by 40 pounds. I also have very large tonsils.
I got a Resmed Autosense 10 autoset last week. I tried it with the Phillips Wisp nose mask. I couldn't sleep 4 of the nights I used it. I did get about 7 hours last night, but had already set up an appointment to try another mask. So I got a Resmed P10.
I'll probably try for another week or so, but am still not sold on CPAP. I think, even if I get used to it, if I don't notice any difference in how I feel, I may return it.
Anyway. Any other advice, other than lose weight?
