My whole life I had trouble sleeping, but the passed 2 years it really came to a head… I wasn’t getting any REM sleep and was waking up like I didn’t really sleep at all. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and I now have the Resmed autoset for her. Since wearing it every night I still wake up about 3 times a night to urinate, I wake up to adjust the mask and it just isn’t making it more easy to breathe. My pressure is at a comfortable level but I just don’t feel like it easy to breathe with this. I have switched masks 3 times and I’m using nasal pillows now. Last night I had 0.7 apnea’s, but I def didn’t sleep well. I don’t know what’s going on and it’s super discouraging. I had has the CPAP for 2 weeks now. My issue before the CPAP is that breathing through my nose isn’t seemless, I’m always slightly congested. Now with the pillows it still doesn’t feel like I’m breathing easily. Same with the masks. Also some nights I wake up with red eyes, and some nights it’s better. It’s affecting my vision and it’s really weird.
