    They aren't easy.

    Basically you will have 20 wires or so attached from head to toe while you sleep. The nurses will wake you whenever one comes loose which happens to me 3-4 times whenever a sleep study is done.

    Don't let this keep you from having a study done though. They can save your life and improve life quality immensely.

I will keep ya posted......I am not sure I could get used to having a mouth piece in, how's thst feel as far as comfort?
    I have an appointment with my family doc next week and I am going to bring up doing some blood work to look at those vitamin levels....I too have some fatigue that is associated with sleep apnea, using this equipment is still all somewhat new to me so I am still feeling my way around it all. Good info in this thread.

    See, although I like both I prefer the nasal pillows. What machine do you have lid?

    I have used the Swift LT pillows for the last 3 years and is the best mask I've had. I can't even tell they're there.

    However, I have just stopped using the cpap over the last week and haven't noticed any difference. I'm not snoring at all, which is great. I've lost a lot of weight and that's made a big difference. After a few weeks of not using it, I'm going to go back and use it again for a week or two to see if I notice a difference.

    I've had two. The first time (diagnosis) I had a hard time falling asleep simply because I was out of my own routine.

    The second time (titration) I slept well even with the uncomfortable mask they used for the study.

    The hardest part for me is that you have to sleep on your back. I normally sleep curled up in a ball.

    Let me know. I'm curious!

    I never noticed more energy when I started therapy.

    I took a trip without my equipment and I felt punch drunk the whole time.

    Re: Any CPAP Users Out There?

    Thought I'd bump this again to see where everyone is. I'm still on nasal pillows. I now use the Swift FX but am considering using the Airfit P10 as a test. Still always very tired during day. I recently started taping my mouth shut which sounds barbaric, but is actually pretty nice. I use 3M Micropore tape.

    But I use my machine every night. It feels weird to sleep without it. If I was a Full Face Mask person I would be non-compliant.
