Just started - about 2 months ago - using a cpap and it's been great…sleep great and feel great.
A few weeks after I started I was getting out of my car, it was the middle of the day, and I could smell manure…lol
At least, that's the closest I could come to describing it. Maybe a cross between manure and freshly dug dirt. It was a fairly strong smell so much so that I asked my uncle if he smelt it, if he had any work done at his house and he said no to both.
Now I get that smell quite often. It doesn't last long and it's not as strong as that first time but it's been on and off, usually every day, since then.
I didn't put it together with the possibility of it being the cpap machine because I wasn't smelling anything funky while using the machine - and I've used both the pillows and the nose mask (never tried the full mask) and have settled on the pillows. The smell occurred while using both.
Reading through the forums I've noticed many discussing smells coming from the machine, or during the night, but has anyone had any similar experiences?
Appreciate your thoughts!
ps…I do have an appt. with the doc next week but I'd like to know hear what you all thing as well.
