I'm having the same problem. I've been on cpap for about 6 months now and feel just as crappy as before I started. For the first 4 months I had problems finding the right mask that didn't leak or leave my nose bruised. I was also diagnosed at the sleep study as needing a pressure of 5. I've since found out I needed to have a pressure of 10. Unfortunately, this hasn't fixed the problem either. I've heard that if you've had sleep apnea for years that sometimes it takes longer to feel better. Any thoughts on this?
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.
I've been using my cpap every night for months and still feel sleepy and fatigued all day. I'm pretty frustrated at this point as I was hoping it would help. I feel like giving up, it's no fun being hooked up to a machine with a mask on my face all night, for nothing. I know my mask fits and is not leaking and my pressure is set correctly. Any ideas? Anyone else have this problem?
Hi my name is Debra. I found out that I have sleep apnea about eight months ago. I have been on the correct pressure now for a few months. I say correct pressure because when I did my sleep study they had my pressure at five. I've since found out that they were way off, and they now have my pressure at ten. The problem is despite using my cpap every night I still feel very fatigued and sleepy during the day. I don't have mask leaks and I'm on the right pressure finally so I don't understand why there's no difference in the way I'm feeling. It's frustrating.
