Yes, I have had dry mouth occasionally. I have had many leaking incidents in past weeks which required an adjustment during the night. Several months ago, I complained to the supplier about similar symptons, and the tech person came out and checked the machines (CPAP and Oxygen) and found nothing wrong.
Do need to change the nose pieces perhaps?
Thanks for replying!
My fatigue was getting so bad that I had to stop using the CPAP. I would wake up and hardly be able to get out of bed and the entire day was a blur. No way I could work or drive a car.
They checked my data; very little leakage, good pressure, good duration,,,,,they couldn't find anything.
A friend had the same thing a few years ago, they did a follow-up sleep study and then put her on meds to keep her awake !!!!! I don't think so......
I told them I wouldn't take meds to counteract the CPAP. There must be a reason. Another sleep study is scheduled.
After doing several on-line searches, I'm finding that this is not that uncommon. But the real cause and treatments seem to vary.
