I’ve recently been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea (Which would explain the tiredness and falling asleep at work) and was given a “ResMed AirSense 10 Elite” machine, and a “ResMed AirFit F10” mask by my doctor (All prescribed by the NHS). The first couple of nights seemed to go fine, I had the best 7 hours sleep I have had in months the first night, but after a while I kept getting this sense of tightness every time I put the mask on, I noticed my heart beating faster, I started to hyperventilate, and just pure fear rushing through my body, and I’ve not been able to keep my mask on for longer than an hour since, I’m constantly ripping it off during the night.

I told my doctor this, and they’re sending me a new mask to try, a “Philips DreamWear” under the nose facial mask

I’m just curious if anyone else has tried this mask, how they coped with it, and if anyone else has had the same panic attacks and sense of claustrophobia.
