Cant say I feel any different yet though.
I get out of bed as I always did. Same amount of energy and all that so a part of me can't figure out why I have severe sleep apnea other than to assume because i sleep on my back 100% of the time its severe.
Anyhow, thats neither here nor there.
The past 5 nights for the first time I am having problems. I am finding that within 90 min or so of falling asleep, I am waking up all stuffed up.
The first two nights I woke up to find, one night, my mask off my head and in my hand. The air and noise woke me up so i am guessing i got stuffed up in my sleep and managed to take off the mask while sleeping.
The next night i somehow managed to pull the nasal mask right down on my mouth so my nose was free and woke up. Guessing i must have undone something, somewhere for i didnt stretch it out of shape.
But from the 3rd night on i am now noticing that the nose is getting blocked and i have to get up and blow it.
Ive never had to do this before..............at least not that i am aware of, although maybe that is why I have always been a mouth breather but i can't say.
Anyhow I am using to sleeping right through the night and walking up good because i have slept 8 hours but these past 3 night waking up a few times a night doesn't do a lot for my mood..
Last night i didn't even bother using it, the first night I have done that, only because i had to take the hubbie in for a small surgery this morning early and i wanted to make sure i would be properly awake to do so but I don't want to go without it on other nights.
So do we have any idea as to why people get clogged up?
I am here, in Toronto and the weather has just changed from a late cold winter to even 2 weeks ago it was chilly but now as of 3 days ago its 80 degrees during the day.
At present the bedroom window had been closed. I am putting an air condition in it today. We began to put it in 4 days ago and were unable to find something so I haven't been able to have the window open the past few days but i don't think that would be the issue.
Ive never had allergies as far as I am aware.......
As its never been an issue for me I have never used this squirty/spray things that people use in their nose but I don't want to start using medication if I don't have to....
Would nasal pillows maybe be the answer? Does it force the air up into the nostril even if you are stuffed up?
Any ideas as to WHY we get stuffed up?
With this change in weather, should I be turning off the humidifier, or using it more, etc?
I seemed to get through the winter ok......Granted I have always slept better in a cold room and will do so again once the A/C is on and hoping that might do the trick but wondering IF there are any settings on the machine i should have changed or not be using now the weather is warmer or any other tricks I am unaware of??
PS: I have one of those heated tubes but just use the regular white one. Assuming the heated one is best for winter, is that right? I don't need it this time of year do i?
