Why I feel I need to Sleep
#1
Hi Everyone ,

Although I am using the CPAP machine since 3 weeks now and my AHI and the leak below the normal , I feel I need to sleep after I wake up in the morning .
- why that ?
- is this normal or not ?
- should I do anything for that ?

Don't forget....if you're relatively new to CPAP therapy, you're body is trying to make up for a lot of sleep deficit. You're finally getting real sleep without all the apneas...your body like it and wants "moar!!"

It is a common feeling when starting out that I have heard about from numerous people...it should subside as your body gets used to getting real sleep again Smile

are you able to sleep more than 6 hours? I needed a lot of extra sleep for the first few months after starting... and 8 months later my sleep patterns are still changing and my sleep is still not settled, but much better than it was before cpap!

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

Same here. I used to get a few hours here and there but after starting cpap I was doing 9+ hours. I'm back to "here and there" but because of leaks.

Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

Mike has it.

Putting Mike's logic a slightly different way, I am told that there is a lot of restorative qualities from sleep that you just can't get enough of when you have OSA. But when you have xPAP, the opportunity then presents itself in a big way. So maybe your body is using that opportunity to do a lot of backed-up restoration work that it could not do before.

This is the pattern I have found, too. After 9 months now, I am finally not craving sleep like I had been since xPAP.

I found that just a little surprising. What I was not expecting at all was that the noturia went away completely. I was wondering why I didn't want to get out of bed in the morning, was a little concerned about that. Then I realized that this may be normal. Before xPAP, I had a compelling reason to get out of bed, that I don't have anymore.

That change happened immediately on day one. I had been getting up once, sometimes twice a night every night for 5 years. With the mask, never once ever again.
