Sure :) I have been on PAP for 11 years. I was getting <5 until a year ago but since then anywhere from about 3 on a good night to over 25 on a bad one. This was caused by cutting benzodiazepine medication prescribed for a c0esisrting sleep disorder, Periodic Limb Movement.
The mask is not leaking badly but I think the air is just blowing out of my mouth. They raised the pressures to 10-20 from 6-17 to try to get the AHI down. I should get some more data tomorrow when I see the sleep doc.
Did your apnoea ever get so bad that you felt pretty much burned out? I mean, beyond tired, beyond exhausted even?
What strategies did you use to recover?
