I am new around here, not new to CPAP's, I was diagnosed a little over 2 years ago through a sleep study done in a local hospital. I had a technician come to my house, explain the machine, how to use it etc.
I used it for about 3 months on and off. It seemed I could never get used to the pressure (13.0) & found myself waking up every morning, with the mask off my face. I never actually remember pulling off the mask in the middle of the night. About three months in, I gave up on it.
I have since tried to use it a few more times, with the same problem(s). Last night, was talking to a friend in a different forum & he suggested I come here. Glad I did, I hadn't even thought to look for a sleep apnea board...
I am very frustrated, cause' I sleep like crap without it (grind my teeth) wake up tired everyday but when I have it on, I seem to wake up with similar results.
My machine has the ramp up feature & I use it, but I always wake up several times throughout the night because it feels unnatural to have this air forced into my lungs.
Any advice would be appreciated!!
