New to CPAP

I'm Dan & last night had a sleep study to re-evaluate my sleep apnea which was first diagnosed 6.5 years ago. This was a split study and during the 2nd half, my symptoms completely cleared up after using a nasal mask.
For the past 5.5-6 years, I've been using an oral appliance which did help quite a bit. However, starting this past July, I began waking up feeling exhausted more frequently. Also, for about the past month, I've been having headaches almost daily. I don't always wake up with one, but, it would develop later in the AM or early afternoon. I'm waiting to hear from the specialist's office within the next 2 weeks to make an appt & go over the results.
Does anyone have any suggestions regarding the CPAP machines themselves? Thanks.
