@Sierra, my mask fit has been pretty decent so far. My pressure settings are 5-18 with auto-titration (I think), and it mostly stays around 5. According to the myair app, my AHI has been rather low (0-0.5) for the last few nights. However, as mentioned above, my RDI was quite high on my original sleep test, and so I'm not sure if that has improved with cpap.
I still wake up a few times each night with CPAP - I have yet to sleep all the way through the night.
4variety Our stories sound quite similar, so thanks so much for the reply. Have you been able to achieve any improvement at all with your fatigue? If so, what helped you?
Also, are you still using cpap or have you stopped?
I am a 22-year-old male living in Indiana. After suffering from two years of daytime sleepiness and brain fog, I was diagnosed this winter with upper airway resistance syndrome/mild sleep apnea. I had an AHI of just 1.2, but my RDI was 11.2 (which combined with my symptoms, led to a diagnosis of sleep apnea/UARS).
My doctor prescribed me CPAP, and I began using a Resmed Airsense 10 two weeks ago. I am using the nasal pillows mask. I have struggled to adapt to the therapy, though I have succeeded in sleeping through the night with CPAP on a few times.
However, I am feeling more tired than usual, with no improvements so far. My morale is quite low, and I wanted to see if anyone on this forum could offer guidance about achieving results with CPAP (as well as what the timeline for that will be).
