This BIPAP is aging me!! :(

This BIPAP is aging me!! :(
I wear a full face mask for my BIPAP. I sleep comfortably. I am noticing it seems to be pulling on my eyes and I have definitely aged since using the BIPAP these last 6 months. My top eyelids have drooped and I have under eye bags!! Any suggestions?

RE: This BIPAP is aging me!! :(
Koosa44, welcome, good question, I was going to ask about the bags under my eyes each morning, mine seem to go either after a shower or by mid morning. I aslo use a full face mask and have a theory that it maybe the air being forced up my nose and because our eyes, ears, nose and throat are connected that it maybe forcing pockets of air into those sacks under our eyes. It doesn't worry me that much, I'm 51 so don't worry about my looks. They look much better than the black sunken eyes I used to have when I only got 1-2 hours sleep a night. Will be interested to hear what others think.

Just a thought, your FFM may be slightly occluding your lymph system resulting in bags under your eyes. It should go away once you are up and around.
