Wiredgeorge thanks for your advice. My boyfriend is the one with apnea and after talking to our cpap girl we've discovered that there was missing blocks of time on the software that was not detecting any readings. It seems that he was turning off the machine, unhooking the hose from the mask like normal when he used the bathroom the unfortunately, he wasn't hooking it back up when he came back to bed. Later through the night he would use the bathroom again and rehook the hose and turn the cpap back on like he should. Of course he was asleep so he had no clue he had periods of time with the mask on but no air intake. Since we don't live together I didn't notice this. He also confessed to having naps without the machine. We have found the cause and fixed the problem so hopefully this won't happen again. Thanks again George.
HI All. I looked around previous boards and I'm having an issue finding any information about sleep apnea symptoms returning after a month of using the cpap machine.
So let me explain...cpap treatment started about a month ago and almost instantly the sleep apnea symptoms started improving. Now for some reason they are coming back, getting up to use the bathroom, waking up tired, overly tired while driving and so on.
The data from the dream mapper app is still saying all is well. Some nights are better than others but AHI is always lower than 5 which is the goal and mask fit is at 100% .
So I'm wondering if anyone can give some advise???
