[Pressure] High Pressure & Weird "Air Leak"
High Pressure & Weird "Air Leak"
I am newer to using my CPAP machine and have experienced a weird "air leak" when the pressure hits 11 or higher. I have woken up on several occasions feeling air leaking from my eye socket- not from my mask but from my actual eye socket. 

I have vague memories as a kid of holding my breath and being able to "squeeze air out" of my eye socket. Is this something I should be worried about? I already have issues with dry eye and this is definitely not helping.
