Sleepy all day
#1
Sleepy all day
Hi, everyone.

Been on CPAP since 2017, self-diagnosed.

First day, I've used default pressure of 4-20. Felt great, everything was amazing.

After a month or so, feeling sluggish again, til this day.

I've been tinkering the pressure for a while, but lately I've been feeling especially tired.

I've tried lowering the pressure for about a week (9-11) and was feeling even worse.

Aerophagia is a huge part of my treatment, I can't get rid of it, even while using lower pressure (9).

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

RE: Sleepy all day
To looks good, the only thing I see is flex level is 3 and quite a few people on this site report that flex 3 caused them problems and using 2 helped normalize sleep. Sorry I can’t be of more help but if no one has other suggestions Chan the flex to 2.

RE: Sleepy all day
If you're suffering aerophagia, drop your minimum pressure back to 9.0 from 11.0. Your results are as good as I have seen on a Philips machine and I think you can afford a lower pressure. I think you can get good treatment and less air in your stomach.
