I first experienced these symptoms about three weeks ago after my 4th night sleeping with a CPAP machine. So, I stopped using it for a week or so. I tried it again for a few nights and had only mild symptoms that cleared up after a few hours. Today, it's all back full force and driving me nuts.

I've tried Flonase, saline solution spray, Neti Pot, and Vick's Vaporub mostly to no avail. I'm thinking that perhaps I've squirted too much stuff up my nose.

I'm wondering if anyone else has had this reaction to using what I call my "sleeping machine"?

Thank you for any help or advice forthcoming.

P. S. As someone who has spent most of her life w/o pc's (I'm 75), I'd like to express my appreciation for computers, the Internet, Google and high tech in general which has allowed me to be part of this forum!! smilewinkgrin

Welcome to the forum, Maggie.

Sorry no one has responded to your post. I'm bumping it up to the top of the list so it might yet get read. I'm over 70. Glad for some company!

I don't know much about CPAP, although my sister uses one. Do you use water in yours?

You might try using meds, sinus washes and whatever you do in the morning, not soon before bedtime. But no docs here, so the best thing to do is ask your doctor.

Are you seeing a pulmonologist or an allergist?

I don't get anything out of Flonase. Saline sprays don't give me any relief either unless I just want a little moisturizing. I tried netti pot, but it doesn't give a very good wash, so I now use NeilMed's 8 ounce bottle. I like the packets of salt although I could make my own mix cheaper. It's just easier and faster. the cheapest I've found is at Walgreen - make sure you get the right packet for the bottle! NEVER use tap water because brain-eating ameba can be in tap water. I read about this in one of my water treatment plant operator courses.
