[Pressure] Please Help: Feel exhausted
#1
Please Help: Feel exhausted
I have what seems like well managed apnea and good mask fit, but I still feel terrible/exhausted and barely sleep, wake up after 2-3 hours even though nothing seems to bother me. Good mask fit, low AHI. I just don't get why I always wake up and struggle to fall back a sleep. 

Is there anything to see on the chart on what might be waking me up? The middle blank part is where I wake and go off the machine a while, to later go back on and hopefully fall back a sleep. Average about 6 (Always in two parts) hours a night. 

Any help or advice greatly appreciated.

I can't say why you're waking and not able to get back to sleep. Unless you have to get up to use the bathroom or get a drink, try to stay in bed and keep the mask on.
You aren't showing any events except some Clear Airway, so my suggestion would be to take the EPR setting from 3 to 2.

Do you take any medications with side effects of insomnia? Or have any back, hip leg pain? There are many things that can interrupt your sleep. I have all of the above , so while my sleep quality is much better since I started APAP in September, I still wake up frequently due to other causes.
