Swollen face
Swollen face

I’m waking up with a severe swollen face and severe swollen shut eyes. This has happened a few times djnce I’ve started using my cpap machine in the last few weeks. Is my full face masks too tight? Doesn’t leave a ton of marks on face but just swollen eyes snd cheeks. Perhaps something else now that I’m getting restful sleep??

If it isn't allergies (Holy COW!!!  Shock-2 ), it is congestion in tissue, and it could be from bradycardia.  Low heart rate.  Or cardiac insufficiency.  Are you on meds to control BP or heart rate?

RE: Swollen face
I would be looking in to possible allergies to silicone or other products in the fan to face components (filters, plastics, rubber) hours of close contact with something may be triggering a reaction where previously brief random contact may not have been enough to cause a reaction.

If it isn't allergies you will need to get checked further - either way your doctor is the first place to start.. and I wouldn't delay making an appointment if it were me.

I hope you find the answer quickly.

RE: Swollen face
SO strange because it’s only been a few nights. I’m going to check in with my dr. My hr runs very low to begin. The neck mask seems to bother my neck (next day I notice) which seems like the positioning. I may try a different mask. I read there’s a bagel response to the mask as well.
