This happened so often that my bedroom walls need to be repaired. And I am renting! I don't know how to explain the damages to my landlord. I couldnt breathe with the mask on. I would wake up and grab the mask off to catch my breath. My significant other finally took to sleeping in the den. The machine was too noisy and he was afraid that one of these nights, the machine would be tossed in his direction. He is probably right. The machine is just NOT the answer for me. But I dont know where to go from here. My sleep apnea is very severe, so I don't have many choices. Any ideas??

Can I buy a used CPAP on eBay or Craigslist and set it up myself?
Reason: I don't have $900 for the sleep study, but am pretty sure I
have sleep apnea.
My main concern would be the setting, but could I not start on a low setting and experiment?
