I am new at this, but I have apnea and trying to get used to the mask is difficult. I had a full face mask but it cut my nose when tightened, now I have the pig mask. I open my mouth after years of snoring, with the strap it pushes my face forward making the mask leak. IF the strap isn't tight, I still open my mouth. ANY suggestions would be welcome. I sleep in a LAZYBOY, no way could I in bed, I keep rolling and moving the mask then it leaks. TO ME THIS IS A VERY HARD THING TO GET USED TO

It's pretty frustrating isn't it! I tried 7 different masks until I found the right one, or so I thought. It was perfect at least until my pressure was changed to a higher pressure, now I'm right back to where I started, looking for the right mask.

My pressure is set at 17, and with a full mask it was impossible, but quiet, now I have a pig mask??? and it does leak, but is very noisey. I wear it any time I sleep; and am hoping to wake up "HEALED"
