I was forced to get a full face mask because I breathe through my mouth automatically once I fall asleep. I’ve had the CPAP for a month and still can’t sleep with it. I’m terrified of getting permanent face scars as I have the smallest face mask but it won’t seal unless I pull it REALLY tight. The place it hits above the corners of my mouth is a really dark red and takes hours to go away after I wear it for just an hour and I don’t know what to do. I’m a performer so I kinda rely on my face not having marks on it. Any advice? It also gives me a headache. I don’t know how anyone can sleep with these. It also puffs out my cheeks and after wearing it for a while they start to cramp.
