Hello @crookshank and welcome to Mayo Connect.

I can understand your wanting to get help with your sleep problems. We have many members who have experienced sleep apnea and have used the CPAP device. Almost everyone has had a difficult adjustment to the device at first, but many have found ways to make it more comfortable and useful.

I encourage you to read the following discussions about adaptations that people have found for the CPAP discomfort, please click on this link to see these conversations: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/cpap-and-sleep/?orderby=DESC#chv4-comment-stream-header. As you read these discussions you will see that there are many adaptations to the full face mask that you could try.

I would also like to tag a few members who have used CPAP and might be able to encourage you, @johnbishop, @thankful, @dawn_giacabazi, @oldkarl, @etaniguchi and @johnhans

Will you post again with an update of your progress?
