I was hoping I would be one of those people who slept the first night with cpap and felt great. That has not been the case.
I am so damn tired. Way worse than before CPAP. I last about 6ish hours with it on each night. Being this sleep deprived is unsustainable for me.
Anyone else have this experience? I can’t function the day after using it.
I’ve been giving myself a night off here or there so I don’t go completely insane with sleep deprivation. After the 3rd night in a row with it I am a complete zombie.
The mask seems to fit fine, but I guess I’m waking up multiple times a night simply because it is on me. The air pressure doesn’t bother me. I don’t know why I’m waking up. I was a really light sleeper before.
I need some stories of hope or some support saying quitting makes sense.
I’m really struggling with this. I understand the 50% compliance statistic now. I hate that I’ve probably wasted so much $ on this.
I am at wits end. I know I could benefit from a machine. I recorded myself gasping for air night after night. Friends have told me the same. I see secondhand machines new and in the box available for sale
I don’t have insurance. The first sleep study I ever did I found it impossible to sleep in the lab so it was just inconclusive
I know the majority of people are going to insist that I see a doctor because that’s just how things are done. But is there anyone online that can share advice around just buying a machine. Is it impossible to do so? Are they just too hard to program?
