It sounds like you have a full face mask that is not properly adjusted. If you could provide the specific model of mask you are using and your treatment pressure perhaps someone with the same mask or similar can offer suggestions.

You could be having problems with pressure...or shifting positions when you sleep. What's your mask type?

My first thought is not having a good seal. If i don't wash my face and mask right before bed, I have seal issues too. I'm also a side sleeper and that can cause a problem with some full face masks.
