Very Odd Problem
#1
Surprised 
Hi guys, I've developed an odd problem and want to know what others think or if they have experienced it...I can talk properly and breathe through my mouth - with my nasel mask on! When I first got it, there was no way I could do that but now.....it's bizarre! I will say that I only noticed this a couple of days ago, but have been feeling like I did before the cpap, tired all day, feel like I haven't slept. I thought the machine was faulty, so took it back to supplier, the tested it, working fine. Think I need another sleep study. Wish I could have purchased the auto machine, but my sleep study doctors only recommend fixed. Not happy at all. Any ideas - suggestions?:Dont-know

HELLO,

I've had a similar change in my ability to speak even with my mask on whereas before it would have been impossible. I don't find myself tired or feeling worse because of it.
I think that my throat muscles have adjusted to the pressure and ( I don't know how to describe it) close up the upper part so that air doesn't escape out my mouth.

I think that it's like gargling mouthwash...you close your throat so you don't swallow the mouthwash when it's at the back of your throat...similar process with the cpap.

anything worth doing is worth doing well...sleeping included...sleep well friends Smile

Sounds like you need a chin strap to keep your mouth closed during the night.

No, I am not breathing through my mouth when asleep - not showing any leaks at all so a chin strap isn't the answer. Baffling, but anyway thanks for the replies
