What part is wrong?
You have a prescription. You can try as many masks as you can afford. But then there is the end of your financial rope. :cry:
I see. Thank you.

Re: new or used

Want to say thanks for the ideas. For some reason I am not getting the new notification alerts so I am not seeing all the responses. My memory has been impaired rather randomly. Maybe it depends how much sleep I got. I have a hard time finding things on the site, especially if I don't even remember ...

Re: new or used

If you bought it from a supplier, take it back. If you bought it from a private party "you pay your money and you take your chances". I think a used machine would be not great for me because if the user smoked, used scented lotion or perfume, , scented sprays, air fresheners or "aroma therapy" slee...

Re: have tried so many masks

as long as insurance and the DME and your doctor allows it If I want to try a mask, I buy it and try it. I have never discussed my mask choice with the sleep clinic. If I see a new mask on the market that looks interesting, I buy it from the forum sponsor, cpap.com. If I like the mask, I keep it. I...

Re: have tried so many masks

I told him about the mask and the dental appliance both giving me tooth pain. I used to wear a nightguard every night because I clenched my teeth at night. I found I would have discomfort in my teeth for several hours in the morning--the clenching puts pressure on the nightguard & pushes them forwa...

Re: have tried so many masks

I don't really know that much about masks as I have only had the Resmed Mirage FX Nasal and Airfit P10. I will be going for a new mask on Tuesday November 2nd Im not sure what kind Ill get next but I do know finding the perfect mask is a trial and error process that can take many turns as long as i...

Re: have tried so many masks

About the ramp - if you've set it to take 40 mins to 'ramp up' from a very low (close to default machine low of 4) to (another) still-low min. pressure, you're not being fully treated for all that time. Unless your min. setting is actually much higher now than e.g. 6 or 7, you should set the ramp t...

Re: OT: Super Froggy--cancer, part 2

Well, Monday morning is my 2nd PET scan. This will determine how effective my two rounds of chemo have been. The kicker is the prep for the procedure. I have to go 24 hours without carbs, or caffeine. Caffeine--no problem. No carbs--on Halloween! Yeah, I will live . . . I hope! Well, that's a bumme...

Re: have tried so many masks

Update: I went and got another mask fitting at the sleep lab. I got a different respiratory therapist who was older and much, much more patient, like night and day from the previous one. LeeAnne. I'm going to remember her name in case I need to go back. I came home with several new masks that might ...

Where did you get the machine? Did they tell you it was new?
They didn't say either way. They just said it was a 3-month trial. Perhaps it was somebody else's 3-moth trial before me.

Re: have tried so many masks

After much internal debate (and a kick by my daughter) I ordered the heated hose. It came yesterday but I haven't opened the package yet.:roll: I suggest washing the hose first before using. Some have complained about an odor if not cleaned first. Just put some warm water in a container with a bit ...

Re: have tried so many masks

Have your teeth been looked at lately? Yeah, I go twice/year like I should. I know my teeth aren't straight but not so bad that I would go through time/money of orthodontia to fix them. I remember the dentist in the past giving me a referral to an orthodontist when I complained of a rotated tooth h...

Re: have tried so many masks

Also, can a facial mask cause tooth pain? It seems like whatever I try it causes tooth pain. :(
