I've been using a cpap machine for about 6 years and normally works great for me. I stay compliant and don't remove it through the night, however some nights I get to bed late and on those nights I'm probably averaging 4-5 hours of sleep.
I am overweight and smoke and have hypertension unfortunately for which I am on blood pressure medication. Lately, my blood pressure has been very high and that has me concerned. I went in and they are increasing my cpap pressure again. If I resume to feeling fine again and my blood pressure returns to a lower level, what does this actually indicate in that I needed to increase my pressure again? I'm afraid this is just a stop-gap measure or should I not be concerned that I've needed to readjust the pressure and just be happy if I start feeling good again.
