Waking up multiple times during night on back; use P30i nasal pillows
Waking up multiple times during night on back; use P30i nasal pillows

I started using a CPAP machine about a year ago. I started with Airfit P30i nasal pillows, using this mask mostly for the entire year. I had to wear a chin strap in the beginning to train my mouth to stay closed. I had to stop wearing the chin strap because I was waking up with a full mouth of sore teeth. Fortunately my mouth doesn't stay open anymore, so I don't need a chin strap. 

Periodically throughout the year I have had leakage problems and issues waking up during the night. I've tried an Airfit P10 and F30i. I am an active side sleeper so I prefer having the tube attached on top. The full mask is okay but doesn't stay on as well. 

The last couple of months, I was sleeping well. Now I wake up about 3-4 times a night, so I am not getting good sleep and am quite tired. I think I am waking up because of the noise from the mask from the leaks. I also always wake up on my back, so I am wondering if I'm having breathing issues which wake me up. Then once up I hear the noise from the mask. I am not sure what precisely is causing me to wake up. I just know that it is happening too often and I am frustrated because I'm so tired. 

I've looked at other nasal pillows online but they don't seem that they would have a good seal. I'm curious what nasal pillow others use. I'll call the sleep coaches tomorrow, but I'm open to hearing other's feedback and suggestions.

Thank you,
