I get dreams or visions when awake. I see pictures like red sofas, all sorts of things.Sometimes I feel as though I am clutching something when I am not. I have just written a poem avbout it!View Thread
Hello JOe I was diagnosed with OSA in 1997 but I have had the symptoms since a child, and am a mouth breather, Over the years I have been given different masks plus an updated machine (which is smaller but heavie)r,so I can't take it with me when I am away from home. Like you, my machine cuts into my face and leaves marks. After use I still have the marks/lines for several hours. I have tried altering the strapping and attachments but it makes no difference. I do sleep better with it, but only sleep for 7 hours at the most. Another thing I have noticed is that the usuage register doesn't give a full reading. Sometimes it only adds 2 hours? Do you think we should complain to the hospital,although they aren't the designers.I am with St.Thomas' in London. What about you? Sorry I don't have an answer.View Thread
