Since starting CPAP in January I’ve had more frequent reoccurrences of TMJ pain and this week it’s just been HORRIBLE. I use the airfit F-30 mask (nose rests on top it covers the mouth) I also have a pretty high pressure of 13 so I have to get the mask pretty snug all around to get a decent seal which pushes my bottom jaw back so all night my jaw is either pushing against the mask when my mouth is closed or it pushed against my jaw when I breath through my mouth. Any similar experiences and things that helped you? Different mask? TMJ exercises (I’m going to try once the pain subsides I guess you shouldn’t while it hurts), cortisone shots? Thanks!!
