Fatigued even with mask

So I have been regularly sleeping with my APAP mask. However I've been waking up extremely tired and fatigued like I didn't sleep. Has anyone experienced this? I want to know what others have done to resolve this. Is another sleep study in order?

  1. Hi . Is it possible your mask is not really fitted correctly? If so, you might not be getting the quality of sleep that you need. You might want to call the medical supply store that set up with the equipment initially and ask for an evaluation of your mask fit. Another possibility is that you need a CPAP rather than an APAP. That would require that you reach out to your doctor for a new prescription. Here are a couple of articles that might interest you. This one is about quality of sleep: This one is about the differences between CPAP and APAP: I hope this helps and that you are able to change things up for a better night's sleep. Warm wishes. - Lori (Team Member)
