    facial swelling on CPAP
    KeraNadine posted:
    I have sleep apnea and use a CPAP. When I do use the CPAP, I get facial swelling. since getting the CPAP 5 years ago, I have had sinus surgery to fix a deviated septum. I breath much better but the facial swelling has gotten worse, my eyes swell almost shut and stay that way for hours. I have no swelling when I don't use the CPAP. I also have nocturia or enuresis when on CPAP. When I do not use the CPAP I do not have any nocturia or enuresis.
