I have had a cpap for about a week now and I am having a couple issues.
1. I keep waking up about an 2.5 hours after I fall asleep. When I wake up im wide awake. For some reason I take my mask off (its hard to remember exactly why) but as soon as I take it off I become extremely sleepy almost instantly. For a few nights I was able to fight the sleepy feeling and get my mask back on before I fall asleep. Last night however I just fell asleep right after I took it off and did not put it on the rest of the night. This is frustrating because not only am I tired but my insurance payed for the cpap, so if this continues they will take back the machine (80% compliance over 4 hours a night). I am going to try and upload my sleepy head data in hopes someone can tell me what is going on because its pretty much gibberish to me. Hopefully my SSN isnt in the data
(It would not let me upload the sleepyhead csv file so I just copied all the data on my card into a zip file and uploaded, hope that's alright)
2. I am also having some mask leaks, mostly above my nose on the right side of my face or under my chin. I am a side sleeper. I am probably going to try to get a different mask so any advice on choosing one would be great. Im currently using a large Amara Gel. I was thinking about trying the AirFit F20. I need a full face mask because about half the time I dont breath well through my nose.
