I know - right?
Not a usual happenstance, but I can indeed sleep for 9 or even 10 hours now, when I need to. Before CPAP I woke from body pain several times a night and got up when I just hurt too much to sleep anymore. Now I can truly sleep like a baby a majority of the time!
I wish I felt my best after 7 hrs, but I never have; still a typical night is 7.5 hours
I have always wanted to sleep a full 8, just to know what I feels like but 9! WOW- I rarely get close to seven hours and typically sleep between 5 and 6. Although in the last couple of weeks I have had several 6.5 hour nights. This may be a result of the Therapy
it'll take more than a doctor to prescribe a remedy

Thanks everyone for your responses. I'm no having no problem with using the mask except for when I first put it on. There's a small hole in the front which allows air to escape to prevent the buildup of CO2. THAT bothers me, I keep checking for leakage but its just that stupid hole. Maybe I'll call the sleep center and see if that's normal. I have downloaded sleepyhead but I have yet to download the memory card.
I am one week into therapy with my new toy. Based on how I feel right now and how it is going, I estimate the time to "feeling better" at forever...
I am not a Medical professional and I don't play one on the internet.
