So, my device was installed on 9/11/19 and turned on for the first time a month later. Everything went well during the activation, but I quickly realized that something wasn't right when I started to sleep. The device would give the initial stimulation with I turned it on with the remote, but then it would intermittently work throughout the night. I kept telling my rep what was happening, but he kept telling me that it was just my body getting adjusted to it. After a month of the device literally not working at night, my device was reprogrammed and on the first night, it was difficult to breath and I got severe pain to the side of my head every time the device would fire. So, it took a while to get seen again and last week I was reprogrammed, AGAIN. Now, it seems as though the device is "on" all night, but I feel as though the stimulation significantly decreases throughout the night, almost like a battery dying. It's always much stronger at the beginning of the night. Anyone else having this issue with a decrease in stimulation throughout the night?

And a DreamStation costs about $600, while an Inspire device costs in the $50,000 range if I recall correctly.
