Still Tired Constantly..

Hi guys & gals.

Relatively new to the Sleep Apnea world. But curious to hear from others about their experiences and especially how long it takes to settle down?

I've had my machine for four months now, a ResMed machine using an F20 mask, that whilst not perfect, works well on me. My sleep durations are between 7 and 9 hours most nights, my events are regularly below five and never above 10, and more often than not I'm sleeping through with no wake ups..

BUT I am still always shattered.

The minute I sit in a quiet place, I nod off.. if the TV is on or someone is there my attention is focussed and I'm good. But relax and sleep.. Until I go to bed, then it can take 20 to 30 mins to drop off..

Does the tiredness drop off? Does getting to sleep get easier?

Before being diagnosed I'd had sleep issues for years, restless bladder, restless leg, migraines, moody etc. I developed high blood pressure, gained loads of weight, suffered depression etc.

When do things start to swing in the other direction? That's if they do at all?

Many thanks in advance..
