swelling with CPAP?
shar_pei posted:
I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea 10 years ago. Used the cap nose pillows for 3 days and woke up looking like a shar-pei. Never figured out why so tried it again a few months later. Same result so I had the uppp surgery. Some improvement but now apnea is worse than ever. Dont have the surgery!! Its horrible and now theyve decided its not all that effective. Anyway just did more sleep studies, apnea is worse and after a week on cpap with humidifier and oxygen I had severely swollen face hands and feet. Still dont know why. Stopped using it because throat was swelling too. Not a cute shar-pei anymore, now look like a bad syfy monster. Anyone else have this problem, or better yet a solution???
