I have been using a BiPAP for 5 years now, but over the course of the last year, I have developed constant hayfever (sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose) like symptoms, especially in the winter. I have seen allergists and they say they have never heard of a connection between CPAP/BiPAP use and allergies, but if I stop using the BiPAP the symptoms go away (however my sleep apnea returns)
It seems like the use of the device causes irritation in my nostrils that make them overly sensitive. Claritain-D helps but I still will have 4-7 sneezing fits per day.
Can anyone shed some light on this? Will an APAP help?
