Hi Jeanette,

Sounds as if we share the same villian.  Except I use the nasal pillows when I can keep the head gear on.

I have severe sleep apnea and am I trying to do something about
it.  Recently I started on Lunesta 3 mg
and after a month I really don’t notice any difference.  My Doctor reset my Respironics machine to
full blast up in the 20’s later had to lower it to 14 that is when I discovered
the ramp button.  I can only keep my face apparatus
on for only about 20 minutes then I throw it off.  I have had several fittings with no avail.

I wish I could give you some positive hints, answers or
remarks but not yet.  I found out when I
see my Doc it’s always the same visit.  “How
are you doing Jim?”  “ Still can’t sleep Doc
but hopefully I’m getting better.   Then
I tell her the same thing I always do  that I wake up a lot at night and never reach
Rem sleep.  That’s when I got the scrip
for Lunesta.  Now don’t laugh but I also
bought a Bushnell Trophy Cam, it’s a night vision camera.  I am gathering 10 second movies of my
sleep.  Last night the camera caught 67
episodes.  Let’s see if our next office
visit isn’t a little more productive.

 

L8ter,

Jim

Jeanette, as a fellow member of the forum I would like to welcome you to SleepGuide.  I'm glad you've jumped right in to participating on the forum.  That shows your determination to make CPAP wrk for you.

Mary Z.
