If this is the case.. once your settings are correct.. most of this stuff goes away as your body is now getting the oxygen and sleep it needs therefore goes into rest mode verse the fight mode that it knows it needs to do to keep you from dying.
short term use of a sleeping pill kinda helps with the learning curve. Most people say once they are using their cpap machine.. they never really a good night til they got one.
I feel out of sync with the machine's breathing and end up feeling like I'm drowning. Sleeping pills are not a viable option for me. I have allergic reactions to meds with similarities to benzos.
