First, I want to thank everyone for your past postings and advice - they've been very helpful to me as a first-time CPAP user. All of it helped me navigate three months of frustrating doctor visits but now I can wear a mask. (yay!)
My goal is to wear a mask all night long, preferably on my side.
However, I have 3 remaining issues and wanted to discuss possible solutions with you:
1. Sweat: I sweat with the mask, but it looks like either Remzzzs or Pad-a-Check will reduce this. Other ideas?
2. Headaches: Believe the bottom straps of my FFM are too tight. However, when loosened, there's leakage from the bottom of my chin. Possible causes/solutions: this mask's cushion is too old, need a different mask, use the Padacheek Anti-Leak band. Other ideas?
3. Chin Leakage: Building off of #2, my jaw slackens when I'm about to fall asleep, so there's leakage near the chin. What type of mask (or solution) do you recommend to prevent the leakage? I was thinking of trying the Mirage Quattro...Other ideas?
In case my profile doesn't show up, I use a heated humidifier (very dry mouth), need full face masks (couldn't breathe using nasal masks), and am using the ResMed Quattro Air (size Small). I'm a petite female, overweight, and the doctor said that my jaw is slightly pushed back into my throat (partially causing my sleep apnea).
I realize this is a trial-and-error process so I appreciate any words of wisdom you can offer.
Thanks in advance for your advice and help!
