Slept GREAT! My CPAP helps me sleep. But my sleep cycle has not yet switched for my new 11pm-7:30 am job. I have to go to bed now! (10 am)

Thank you all for welcoming me. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I'll be 60 this year, and I have about 60lbs to lose. I started using the CPAP machine in mid-December. Some nights I do just fine (sleep for 8 or more hours). Other nights I feel like the mask is slipping all over my face and leaking whenever I move.

I HAVE been able to go off of the Ambien, but there are many nights when I just can't fall asleep. I start getting ready at about 10PM. I have my ritual: wash my face, brush my teeth, lotion up my hands and feet, etc. Then I read until I feel sleepy, and then I turn in at about 11:30. Last night I lay there until 12:30, and then I got up and went into the guest room and read for an hour or so. I was cold, so I got back into bed and lay there for a long time before I fell asleep. Last time I remember was 2:15 AM!

My husband is reluctant to wake me in the morning, but I don't want to get all turned around, so I have asked him to wake me by 8AM. I have to work in the morning, and I don't want to get a late start. But that's not enough sleep!!!!!

Today, I'm going to give up my one diet Coke that I nurse all day from about 11AM until dinnertime. Hopefully this will lead to a more restful night. Wish me luck!

I woke up a few times but spent about 12 hours of the last 24 sleeping and am feeling refreshed and am glad to be up early (got up at 6:00 a.m. even though I am off work for about week following surgery).

Jill, I am sorry that you're not getting good sleep. It might help to call
your doctor's office and let them know how you're doing. You should
be doing better, if you are using your machine and mask.

I am so sorry that both of you are experiencing difficulty sleeping. I
have been on a cpap, now a bipap, for about 4 years. I think I
suffered alot for about a year even on the cpap. I kept persisting
that my pulmonologist to do a sleep study. It was to be a night
study as well as a day study, while sleeping. Anyway, he changed
me to an auto bipap and wow, I felt so much better. As long as I
get enough sleep 7-8 hours, I do really well during the day.

It could be that your mask is leaking a lot, or your pressures isn't
high enough. If you continue to have problems, I would go back
and see the doctor and let him/her know how you've been feeling.
There is no need to feel so bad every day. I have been there
and I know what you mean.

No so good, I would rate last night a 4, So sleepy today. I wonder if the CPAP really works or if just has a placebo effect sometimes.

Would LOVE to get some sleep tonight, but I have a bad cold. I have several masks, one of which I might try...it is the one that covers your nose AND your mouth...but it is lousy if you are a side sleeper. I will probably end up sleeping in the recliner...went to the doctor & am on a RX. Take care, everyone & stay healthy...

I am sorry SECONACAT that you had a terrible night. I sure hope that
you sleep better tonight. I hate nightmare's! Sleep apnea people
have such a hard time with sleep. If it isn't one bad thing, it's
another.

? I woke twice sneezing several times into my mask. Yuck. Then a nightmare about 3 . At 5 AM let the dog out who wasn't sleeping either. Then up at 6:30 AM. Feel like a zombie today.

About 9 hours and felt well rested in the morning. My mask did not leak and I seemed to be able to get in a comfortable position which is sometimes difficult as I need to sleep on my side. I am thinking I might start sleeping on my other side but haven't figured out how to arrange my bedroom furniture to accomplish that. emoticon
