Heck it would be useful if sleep centers provided any kind of meaningful support. Like how to deal with aerophagia, insomnia, mask leaks. Like why you need to insist on a full efficacy data machine and how to interpret the data. Like how to become and stay compliant even if you don't feel better in the short run.lulu329 wrote:I
Its my goal to try and solve this, because it really can ruin your skin and more and more women are getting diagnosed.
Why the sleep center practices don't at least have blogs about this is beyond me. It could be a huge marketing opp if they at least offer some suggestions.
It sounds to me like your mask headgear and straps are WAY too tight. A few marks on the face aren't uncommon---but waking up looking like a prize fighter with dark circles under the eyes should NOT be happening. You might want to try a mask liner--that may allow you to loosen the headgear and still maintain a seal. Quality mask liners are sold by companies like Padacheek and Remzzz. Google them and you'll find some links. Or make your own by cutting up a soft, worn 100% cotton t-shirt. Cut the mask liner a bit bigger than the mask cushion and then cut a hole in the middle for your nose to poke through.I woke up today and I look like a prize fighter. dark circles where the mak hits and indents under that, one side worse than the other because I sleep on my left.
