I am new to this forum but not new to using a CPAP, I have been using the equipment successfully for around 5 years but the last few months I have had an array of niggley problems. I seem to be swallowing air as im falling to sleep and it can feel quite uncomfortable as anyone else experienced this?
I have been waking up during the night with a really dry mouth, I use a full face mask because I am a mouth breather, with a humidifier and heated tube, I dont think air is leaking from the mask, like I say I am a reasonably experienced CPAP user. Im petrified to use a chin strap as I feel I would need my mouth open to allow me to breath. I think I will try an artificial saliva, like a spy or patch. Has anyone got any recommendations for a spay or patch that works or even any different tips that I can try?
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
