I'm on the Remstar Auto with A-flex. My pressure setting is at 10. Previous nasal mask F&P Eson. New full face mask F&P Simplus.
I started off with just a nasal mask, but was finding that my jaw would go slack in the middle of the night and even though my lips were closed, air was going into my mouth and waking me up as it would puff up my cheeks then go out the mouth. I have to say, this is the most disconcerting feeling ever. I kept trying it through the weekend to see if I could adjust, but giving that I had been waking up multiple times a night, it was obvious that this wasn't working for me.
Yesterday, I went back to my DME and traded out my nasal mask for the full face one. Mainly because I couldn't stand that the air was rushing out of my mouth and secondly because this is the season my allergies act up badly and because of my congestion, I become more of a mouth breather. Last night I tore the mask off after 2 hours. It felt like I was just being pounded by air it was making my legs hurt. (I have no idea what the correlation between that and my legs becoming unbearable is though)
The pressure setting was never changed. With the nasal mask, after a bit, I couldn't even tell it was on. I remember waking up in the night to check to make sure the machine didn't turn off, but everything was working fine. However, with the full face mask, I can't stand the pressure. It feels so much more forceful.
Has anyone experienced this before that could give me some advice?
