I’ve been on CPAP for about a year now. Took me about 6 months the find the right mask, get used to to using the machine, and sleeping through the night consistently with the machine. Once that happened I felt like I was doing cocaine all day every day. I was wide awake, alert, and energetic.
But recently, maybe the last month or so, I am back to being tired again throughout the day. Like not nodding off at stop lights tired like before, but very groggy and in need of a nap. The odd part is that my stats on the machine have never been better. I have crossed the 6+ hours each night threshold. My AHI is consistently below 5.0. And I have zero leaks on the mask. Am I catching up now on all the years of missed sleep? What gives?
