MLHGS : You are not alone, believe me. I have been using my machine for 2 yrs & have had the same issues. I have found that the Swift FX works for me in the mask dept., not sure if you have tried that. Had my machine adjusted about 35-40 times & can handle the pressure but still no more than 2-4 hrs of sleep with that thing. Keep me posted if you find what works for you & I will also do the same....Good Luck Best Wishes!View Thread
They told the only Cpap person that came up to this area that it is no longer feasable. Therefore I am giving it 6 more months on my own, if by then I am still not getting what I need I will be Giving Up The Ghost!!!!! I can't afford to drive 8 or more hrs to get to another Dr that knows what they are doing!!!!! WOW, and then they wonder why people stop using their machines & cpap failsâ€¦ Unless anyone has any ideas I may have not thought of & tried yet. I get 2 hrs on that machine & that's it......Please any ideas???? I am afraid I failed...I have been trying for 2 yrs now, I have made it 8 hrs maybe 4 times in those 2 yrs.
