I am just a patient myself but those symptoms you are suffering with don't seem to be normal. Suggest you speak with your primary care physician and see what a professional can come up with. Good luck!

Hi ImpartialEmeraldGoat2260. Lightheadedness, if it occurs immediately upon awakening and getting out of bed, can be the result of the CPAP helping to lower your blood pressure. I encourage you to speak with your physician about these symptoms to see if other things may be contributing. Nausea is not a general complaint I have encountered from CPAP patients, but I have worked with many patients who have experienced lightheadedness when getting out of bed. I usually encourage patients to sit up slowly and sit on the edge of the bed for a couple of minutes to adjust to the change in blood pressure. Please let us know how things progress!
