CPAP has the potential of being beneficial. My wife says I toss and turn less and don't make as much noise in the night, so she sleeps better - but I don't think that's the way it's supposed to work >.<AMESS wrote:I am with you Max. In fact I feel worse now with cold and cough. Cannot even rest right hacking away with mask on. Must just be us Max. Giving cpap a zero. But must plunge on with ahi of 68 and pulmonary hypertension. Cannot quit. Sometimes I just lay in bed not sleeping. The machine does not know--so I get good scores. I try hard here but just am not making it--yet. 2 and half months in..still hope. --Husband getting his equipment today--so it should be a dualing Cpap party tonight.
For me it's not the air pressure that's an issue, I don't even wake up when it goes to 25 (unless it causes a huge leak). It is 100% the mask and the stupid place they mount hoses and to a lesser extent the way they vent the things.
If they have no solution for me after this next study, I'm just going to simplify a tiny bit of my life and not deal with the hose, mask, machine, water, washing, etc., etc. and return to a less complicated way of not getting any sleep. It's like I'm putting in all this effort and dealing with more things just to be exactly where I was before all the extra "stuff".
