My sleep apnea is mild. My pressure is supposed to be at 7 and when I turn my machine on it says CPAP 7.0 so it seems like that's not a problem. My numbers look good -last night they were Leaks=.04, AHI = 3.8, AI = 0, and HI = 3.8 which is pretty typical of the numbers I've been getting. So, it doesn't make any sense to me - even if I don't feel better yet I shouldn't be feeling worse. I started using the Swift LT for Her and then switched to the Respironics Easy Life Nasal mask because I've been congested and I thought it might be easier to breath using that when I'm congested. The only difference in my sleep that I've noticed is that I remember waking up a few times a night to adjust my mask (or withthe Easy Life mask because my nose was itching), but that's it. I don't wake up with a dry mouth in the morning so I'm assuming that I'm not breathing through my mouth.
I'm going to call my doctor tomorrow, but judging from the past I don't know how helpful she'll be.
