sueC wrote:I have been a CPAP user for a while. I have failed several full face masks because of leaks and pain around nasal area from contact with the mask. Have recently tried a nasal pillow mask and have had ear pain and 2 serious infections. I have been told that this could not be related to nasal pillow mask use. I think this far from the truth. I have severe reflux at night and sleep with my bed elevated. I think this complicates the problem more. If you have any comments or thoughts on this let me know. Thanks.

I am the EXACT same situation as the first post. Mask, reflux, elivation pillow. Mine is caused from my night sweats. Before c-pap I was a side sleeper because I snored so loud it would wake me up just as I dosed off. I always had night sweats but sleeping on my side prevented sweat from dripping into my ears. Guess what happens now that I sleep on my back? You guessed right. ear plugs could trap moisture in the ear. Tonight I will try breathable cotton. Let's see how it goes.
