I dreaded the face hugger at first, could not go to sleep with it. After 2 months I am finally getting used to it. I feel good in the morning, not the hung over feeling from the party I didn't attend.

It took me 2 months before I could tolerate the face hugger. But now I can sleep with it and wake up refreshed in the morning.

I was diagnosed in April with Upper Airway Resistance syndrome and mild sleep Apnea(5.7 events) Since April I have changed masks 3 times and probably only tried using my machine 12 times. I am not getting any sleep and feel awful,but when I use mask I get even worse sleep. I just got a BPAP machine used it once for 2 hours and ended up taking mask off to try to sleep. Dumb question, but what is the answer? Is there any hope for this to get better? I am a mess and would appreciate any help and feedback. Thanks

I'm not an expert, but there are some similarities here with my own story. Got the machine almost 2 years ago, but for the first 16 months I probably didn't use it more than 20 times - and only for a few hours each time. Relied on a mouth piece from 2015 which was obviously not enough. Luckily my doctor agreed to give me a sick leave in March, so I moved out of the bedroom and declared that I needed some weeks to my self. Forced my self to struggle through the nights with the mask. It eventually got a little better. After close to 6 months I still struggle, but some nights are "ok" which make it worthwhile to keep trying. My next step is to try out mask liners as the silicone starts to get annoying after 1,5 - 2 hours
