My hybrid mask broke so I've been using my Airfit 20 full mask. Problem is I keep getting a bruise on my nose that hurts. I wear glasses during work hours and it's sore.
Why does this happen? My mask is not too tight.
I feel asleep without tape last night and boy did I have sleep issues. Wont do that again!
I have been using the Nexcare sensitive paper tape and getting great sleep results. Face hasn't broken out at all. I do find the tape sticks to my lips too much if I don't apply chap stick first.
I didn't like the nasal pillow because it hurt my nose after using 2 nights. I think I'll continue to mouth tape and use the A30 in combination with the A20 if needed. I really like the hybrid mask because I like to read in bed then fall asleep with mask already on. I just need to keep my darn mouth from moving so much in my sleep, I grind at night. I'm pretty sure that's what's causing the mask to slip at the chin.
So the tape over my mouth is making a difference in the quality of sleep I've been getting. I'm still fighting with the mask a little at night. I seem to notice it in the early morning about an hour before I wake. I'm thinking of taping the mask to my face just under the chin where it tends to leak. So far I just shove my blanket up to it or flip on my side and use the pillow.
The mouth guard didn't make it past the boiling step, it melted together. I'd still like to try that option too.
So mask #6 may be the one for me. Time will tell.
Mouth tape worked with Airfit 30 hybrid mask. Got over 11 hours sleep last night. Mask shifted a little but was able to turn on my side and use the pillow to correct it. Only store spot was on my upper lip as I removed the tape. But I'm determined to learn tricks to make it work.
So 1st night with Dreamwear nasal prong and chin strap worked well. Slept like I haven't slept in months. Day 2 and my nasal hurts really bad.
Got the mouthpiece so will try mouth piece with mouth tape and Airfit30 tonight. Hoping...
Another awful sleep night. The hybrid mask leaked and woke me up several times. I was desperate so I put the full mask back on. Nose is killing me! I'm giving my face a rest by wearing the Dreamwear with nasal prong option and the stupid chin strap. Haven't got the tape yet. Hubby offered me duct tape, no thanks. Six masks tried at this point. I just want to sleep!!
I too have had my share of cavities and dental issues with dry mouth. Didn't know until today, after doing research, that sleeping with mouth open is a main cause. I also can't stand the chin strap and am going to try mouth taping so I breathe through the nose only.
I can't stand the chin strap, hate it! I am going to try the mouth taping this weekend.
