Customer Question

I started using a cpap machine about three weeks ago. It's been really hard getting use. I've been waking up with a sinus headache most mornings. They tell me just to stick with it, and I am but my sleep is not any better & probably worse. Should I keep using this? Is there a better alternative I should look at besides blowing air down my throat?

I'll be glad to help.

If you are having this much symptoms, 3 things need to be checked:

1) the fit of the mask, is it pressing too hard? is it too large or too small?

2) the settings

3) need for other enhancements such as humdifier

If you are not getting help with your current provider, I suggest you seek a second opinion. If you're not comfortable with it, obviously you will not be using it and that will not do you any good.

Wish you best of luck.
