Please can anyone help I have been given a CPAP machine and I have tried 4 masks each keep lifting off my face, so no seal and the air pumps hard into my face, persevering but so so tired. Worried as the Lupus has damaged my right lung, could that be stopping the machine inflating my windpipe? Been so upset as if not sorted will have to surrender my driving license received a letter from the DVLA. The furthest I have drove is 15 miles to hospital. Go 5 miles to town once a week never had an accident yet! I so wish my GP had never mentioned this as life hard enough as it is! Thought it would be so simple, walk away machine mask go back now and then. I know there are surgical procedures really think if not sorted by Monday I will have no choice but to go down that route.
I have read so many good reports, why me? So many problems, asked to stop overnight so they can observe me, no facilities, what a joke! Had initial sleep study by a monitor at home.
