CPAP & Sleep apnea

Along with the neurological symptoms I have recently been dx with sleep apnea. I have a CPAP machine on a months trial, this is one that varies the pressure as required it records the information on to an SD card so when I return to the clinic I will then be given a machine that has the correct fixed pressure. I have a full face mask as I could not get on with the nose only one.

Now my problem is I wake in the middle of the night with a very dry mouth (i mean completely dry) my mouth has ballooned with air and the mask is vibrating against my face. I don’t know how to stop this.

I know there is a few of you out there that use a CPAP machine and wondered if you can help?

Hi twist

I seriously just read that through twice and read it as a ‘crap’ machine. I was thinking… if its that bad why don’t you take it back!

I can’t help with any suggestions, but my misreading may just help out by bumping your post back up.
