One FFM failing miserably, the other (uncomfortable) one is working
RE: One FFM failing miserably, the other (uncomfortable) one is working
Just to address one issue the OP mentioned...

When trying on masks at the DME, it can be deceiving. Sitting in a chair is not the position I sleep in at night. So a DME who has you try on the mask while seated is missing some practical application.

I liked one DME that allowed me to lie on one of their sleep study beds, to try out a mask. I liked another DME that had me in a chair that fully reclined. A respiratory tech once gave me good advice on masks - pointing out that when I sleep in bed, my neck (and thus the tensioning on the headgear) is different than trying on a mask while seated.
