After CPAP, my numbers have always looked good according to the doctors. I average 8 hours of sleep a night, very low to no leaks, less than 1-2 AHI per hour, and rarely take the mask off but I still feel terrible.
Many of my symptoms have come down or entirely gone away: the pressure feeling in my head; morning headaches, and acid reflux.
But I am still really tired, have massive brain fog, can't read past 1-2pm in the day and am almost entirely unfunctional at night. I used to go out some times at night. I basically don't any more.
The doctor has said that my best pressure is at 10. We tried going over 10 this week and that kept waking me up and now I feel worse.
The next step is she wants to put me on Nuvigil or Provigil. I'm not against this but I'd like to make 100% sure I've done all I can on the machine end. My doctor thinks we have. She thinks the machine is working as well as it's ever going to work and that the fatigue and brain fog issue is my hormones.
My question: what would SleepyHead tell me that the doctor's haven't?
