I have A-Fib which is caused by sleep apnea.  I was loyal to my CPAP machine for Months and then had a really bad head cold and I stopped using the machine.  I have tried many times to start using it again but find that I wake up about an hour later and pull the mask off.  Does anyone have any suggestions for trying to use this machine again?  I know it is a must but lately it has been so uncomfortable.  Thanks

Hi Beth,  I cant imagine having to sleep with one of those eyes ...I was wondering if perhaps the mask is what your having a problem with?  Can you take the machine to have it refitted or looked at in this way? 

Other than that I dont have any ideas eyes   Hopefully, someone will come along with somemore for you.  Please do keep posting and let us know how your doing.  Take care
