At first it was exhaling but now I just don't know what the issue it. I feel like I am used to it as if I keep it on all night I barely feel it in the morning. But last night I took it off again for some reason. And the last few days I have been more tired than usual. Not sure what is going on. My rt said to give it another week and if I still feel overly tired like this then we will revisit thing s with the doc.
Thanks for asking. It's nice to have a place to turn to when I have these questions.
I do want to add that this morning I almost forgot it was on. A sign for me that I am getting used it but yet I am all but falling asleep at my desk here at work. Is there more to adjusting than the feel of it?
Is it possible to feel worse when you start using the cpap? I almost feel more tired than before. Could this just be me getting used to it? Please help. I need sleep and I know the cpap should help and I've only been using it a week but I'm almost ready to give it up. That's how more tired I feel yesterday and today.
I wanted to say thanks everyone for the post....this helps me as a new user myself a bit. I have many questions and am already finding this site helpful. I did make a post with some questions but it is pending.
I just got my machine on Tuesday. I have the nasal pillows. They aren't too uncomfortable and I love that I can read with them on. But I do have a problem feeling like I have to work too hard to exhale. I think I may have had them on upside down....if thats possible. Although I still had a great seal and all I just felt like I was having to work harder to exhale than I should. Please tell me that this is normal. I looked my brand up today and saw how the head gear goes and I had that on upside down which leads me to beleiv I had them on upside down. So tonight I will wear it the way the pictures showed.....fingers crossed it goes better cause last night I ended up taking the mask off at 3 am and sleeping with out the machine....or trying to sleep with out it.
Please tell me it gets better and that the exhaling part I either get used to or may have been cause it was on wrong. Cause I want this to work....badly.
