So I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea. I adjusted very quickly to falling asleep with my CPAP.

However, before I was using it I could wake up with ease, although later in the day I was drowsy as hell.

Now, I wake up feeling like a 10 ton rock rising from some ethereal plane of existence and can barely get out of bed. But, once I’m finally up, I am up, I’m on, and I feel more awake with longer lasting energy. I also notice I dream a lot more than I used to. If I skip a night, I wake up feeling deprived of something and my head kind of aches. But I wake up much easier.

My question is has anyone else experienced this excessive difficulty waking up after CPAP usage.
