I've been using a machine and a full face mask for roughly 4 months with mostly good results and a few teething problems.
The biggest one currently is mask leakage, seeing a new vendor tonight so hopefully they can help.
But I also find ill have 2-3 quite good nights, then when I'm rested I really struggle to get to sleep with the mask on, mostly from an awkward standpoint. Not because its uncomfortable just unnatural. which then makes me quite anxious... In turn I wake up extremely anxious and will typically toss and turn, have big mask leaks wake up with VERY puffy eyes and it takes a couple nights like this before I'm sufficiently tired to just fall asleep with the mask on and the cycle starts again.
I've never slept on my back (I now suspect I've always had apnea to some degree) and my sleep sturdy said 80/hour when I'm on my back so I'm assuming sub consciously that's part of why.
Has anyone got any tips for minimizing these issues and learning to sleep in my back/side?
When I settle on a mask I like and can purchase a machine rather than be at the mercy of health 'professionals' who care more about their sale and commission rather than my health it'll help too as ill be back in control.
