I have been using an Air Sense 10 for over three years with no problems at all. I have suffered from cluster headaches for many years and my neurologist pushed me to have a sleep study which showed my apnea.And as she thought once I started treatment for my apnea my cluster headaches stopped!
A month ago I fell and broke my shoulder so I have of course moved from my bed to a recliner. Since then I am seeing the red face mask leak symbol every time I wake up and my dreaded cluster headaches have returned. I almost never saw that dreaded red face sleeping in my bed on my side with a pillow. Evidently, my apnea is not being stopped, hence the clusters breaking through.I have tried loosening my full face mask, tightening it and nothing seems to work. The only difference I can see is that I am now sleeping on my back instead of my side.
Hoping someone out there can see something that I have missed. I need to stop these headaches I before surgery..Not sure how I can deal with the surgery pain plus these debilitating headaches.
