... +2 Headthrob, I just got a machine and mask as well
Getting the mask right is easier in theory I reckon, my first night wasn't great either.
Hope you're doing ok
The second night was a lot better. I still get the problem of leaking air in certain positions, is there an optimal position to sleep in? If I sleep on my side it scrunches the mask up on the side and air leaks out of the other, if I sleep on my back, it stretches the straps and leaks on both sides
A couple of odd things have happened, the first odd thing that has happened is every night is that at about 00:30 to 01:00, my girlfriend says that I just take my mask off and put it down and leave it off. She has to prod me to put it back on. I have no recollection of these events at all, I must be doing it in some sort of sleep trance?
The second is that sometimes my machine seems to just go mad? My girlfriend says it gets really loud and then I start spluttering. I have woken up a couple of times to it really blowing air in hard and making my cheeks swell up and it doesn't seem to ease up until I switch it off and turn it back on again?
This will be my 5th morning since using the machine and i definitely feel the difference, I still feel a little tired here and there but that will be just trying to get the mask to stay on properly.
How are you getting on with yours Dee, can you feel any difference?
