But to be honest with you that is just a guess on my part. I am sure somebody familiar with your mask will chime in soon and be able to solve your problem. Just try to keep using your CPAP. Also contact your DME and see what they can tell you, I am sure they should be able to readjust it properly for you or maybe have you try a different mask. Good Luck to You, and again Welcome to the forum

seajoy wrote:Hi, fellow sleep apnea friends.
I was just diagnosed with sleep apnea in early August. I have had my cpap machine for about 3wks. The tip of my nose is killing me, and after about 2-4 hours of sleep, I throw the thing off my face every night. The tip of my nose has a red line on it that never goes away.
My mask is a newer type, I'm told. It's the ResMed Swift LT. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? My pressure is set at 11.
This is my first post here, and I look forward to meeting you folks. Even with the short amount of sleep with the machine, I have tons more energy already. I also have Fibromyalgia, and depression/anxiety troubles.
Thanks for any help you can give me. I hope to help others too.
