I have been using the Liberty Mirage mask since the middle of the summer. I had no problems with it (other than leaking that was taken care of by Mack's silicone) but over the last 3 weeks I have been having terrible headaches, sore throat, sinus pain, now I have developed a nasty nasal drip and my sinuses feel stuffed up ( I think I have developed an infection). My mouth constantly tastes like metal.
I have the humidifier attached to my machine but I have it set on ' 0 '. The air was too humid, hot and heavy at a 1 or 2 setting so I was told to put the setting on '0' allowing the air to pass over the water. Even with the setting on 0 I was waking up in the middle of the night with a nose full of water and water dripping down my throat (I am a nose breather).
I don't know if the drier fall/winter air is what is causing the problem. I can't crank up the humidifier or I will drown. I do clean my humidifier tank regularly so I don't think I am having problems from bacteria in the water.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Luckily I have a quattro mask to use until my sinuses clear. I have not been able to use my quattro consistently because of a sore I keep getting on the bridge of my nose but I do prefer the way the air feels in a full face mask.
