I was diagnosed in Dec. and should be getting a machine within a couple of weeks. I went in for the titration and slept with the mask for the first time on Monday night. I slept much better than I had expected.
However, by Tuesday evening, I felt like I was coming down with something. I tried to head it off with some medicine, but, sure enough, I've got a full-blown case of the crud.
I've always been prone to sinus infections (I take Nasonex). I don't know if that's what I've got, but it does feel like pretty much the same thing I come down with every year or so.
Hopefully it's just a coincidence, but I can't help but be concerned about getting sick immediately after using cpap for the first time. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Anyone have any insight into the possible connection between first-time cpap on Monday and chicken soup and Sucrets on Friday?
