Does the CPAP Mask cause puffiness and dark circles under your eyes?
Hello all my fellow CPAP users! I haven't posted anything in quite a while. I started using my CPAP in January of 2019 and you were such a help to me. I had 27 events an hour and am now down to 2.5. It has been a successful year and I am grateful to everyone that has helped me.
I have a question. I use a Resmed Swift FX for her nasal mask. It is very light and comfortable. I use the humidifier and a heated tube. I have noticed in the last 4 to 5 months that I am waking up with puffiness under my eyes and dark circles. I have a family hereditary factor of this and have always had a problem but not like this. I also don't know if it is just age….I asked my sleep doctor and he said if the mask was not pressing on my eye area, which it is not…then the mask is not the problem. The venting is not pouring air into my eye areas either.
Has anyone experienced this problem? I lowered the humidity and heat in my machine last night since it is no longer cold in Florida, hoping that would help. I would appreciate feedback.
I do apologize for such a vain problem when we have more serious worries in our world right now.
Thanks everyone… CeCe55
