RE: Strange Happenings 3rd week w/CPAP
There's several really good full face masks out there. Go to your supplier and talk to them about trying some.

You have a Remstar but it has the word Pro in the name and I *think* it is data capable. Request the manual and see. The SleepyHead software is free.

And Cowboy, that sounds like sleep paralysis. Some people experience it only once their entire life, others more often. If it happens often enough, it is time to see the doc.

Don't worry unless it happens often.

Avoid the FFM if you can.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.
Useful links.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
