Hi all. I just received and started my CPAP therapy three days ago. I have a full mask. The first night I slept horribly—maybe 3 hours. I took melatonin the past two nights so that I could get some sleep. I am waking up more tired that I normally am and my mask is leaving red cuts on my nose and my face. My AHI is reading around 4, then 6 last night. I’m wondering if I even need to use a CPAP, since I was diagnosed mild (avg. of 5 episodes an hour) and now my AHI would be considered normal.
Anyway–looking for some advice/encouragement that this gets better in terms of how exhausted I feel and my sensitive, red skin 🙁
