I have been sleeping with my cpap machine for two years in July. I LOVE IT! I sleep soundly and deeply. I can't wait to go to bed because I know I will be rested in the morning. That is probably the one thing I have done that has made the most difference. I suffer from afib and had an ablation a year ago.

They had me try one when I was in the hospital. I guess I have sleep apnea when I sleep on my back, which I had to then but seldom do now that I can move around in the bed without help. Have you tried different pillows? Maybe a foam on cut so that allows room for your mask when sleeping on your side? Won't work if you move around a lot like I do, but if you pretty much sleep in one position through the night it might.

My husband gave up sleeping with his mask. It was much too uncomfortable even though it did work (he snores terribly!). I loved it when he wore it. He now refuses to use it so it's back to him snoring. I don't always get much sleep. emoticon

I can do it!!

well I try hard to sleep but with the full mask, which is the one I have to use, because I stop breathing every 3 minutes is always waking me up. I know its because I sleep on my side or on my stomach and it gets pushed away from my face. my doctor told me not to sleep on my back. oh well I try.

keep on trucking
