BUG that sounds like heaven!!!!!
I'm going through this medical program so I can leave CA, I finished the classes but still odds and ends. It's hard to do anything feeling like this. Gotta pull out grit and get to it.
I use the pollen filter and I have a hepa filter air purifier. Last night I had my first aerophagia, I realized my nose was so stuffed up I was opening my mouth a tiny bit to get air.
I need to move, it is hard when people me up every single day. I'm not getting the benefit of cpap because of them.
Thanks Ruby and BUG. My pressure is 12-17 (good memory but my pressure usually tops out at 15.8 max. My SH is all goofed and isn't showing apneas but they were only .83 but my machine was topped off at 17 which is a new high and was flat for a while.
I don't have allergies but I have multiple chemical sensitivity and asthma from previous roommates chemical habits - air freshners, incense, candles, dumping perfume and fixing his house 8 hrs a day - paint, cement, adhesives (they think this started the real lung damage).
I rinse my nose twice a day with saline, use flonase, inhaler, antihistamine with monteklast.
I went to the dr who said my lungs and nose are inflamed and added prednisone. She put in an urgent request for me to see a lung specialist.
My roommate burned incense all night, my machine pegged out at 17 and I still wasn't getting enough air!!!
I have to go to new job exhausted another day. No wonder my lungs are hurting.
I have royally messed up my screen so ignore it, but the flow graph is still good, or should I say it is bad? I made the mask really, really tight SH keeps riding me that I need to do something. What do you think?
Interesting idea Sierra, I happen to own a swift mask. The pillows never fit on it.
AHI 0.16 1.00 2.15 2.27

This is my data for last night and then Jan, Dec, Nov.
Yes, I have p10 for her. I'm scared to death to cut my mask, I only have one. I will try getting a fit down first. That's a good idea to have the pressure on when I do it.
Just curious, SH gives the message that I had significant leaks last night. Is that a meaningful statement?
I haven't worked with a DME as my AHI was 6 before I got fat and out of shape. Does this mean I will get a new mask at the 6th month?
I can't thank you all enough (Sierra especially), I am experiencing terrific sleep! My roommates are on vacation and I no longer have any events in the last 2 hours of sleep. I was having 11-18 awakenings and events every morning. It is such an unusual experience to wake up before the alarm and feel cozy and peaceful. I have no desire to nap and no tired feelings in the day.
I've had my mask since Oct 8th 2018. I could feel it started leaking about a month ago, I put the bottom clip on, as my leak rate has increased I added the top one. Here is the questions:
I sleep on both sides and my back and roll over numerous times. I also have untreated but not noticeable symptoms of restless leg syndrome. My trigger is heat so not an issue now.
Last night I used APAP with min pressure 12 and max 17. It was the same as the other apap nights but again more OSA and I woke up before the alarm and not sloggy headed.
I made my own hose cover with tube socks, I cut a hole in the toe and taped them since I don't sew, it works great. I also used AU hose, it is great and lasted over 10 years.
All room mates are gone. I took a 2 hour nap yesterday, usually AHI =0 but I had 3 OSA and felt rested. I think the apnea was from sleeping more deeply.
Today no one waking me up also more OSA, had no memories of awakening. 3 OSA.
