My abject apologies for not first checking the forum for ALL responses. The pressure was reduced, initially, but the same gulping/swallowing pattern prevailed. Still, I do feel as if I were receiving too much air. Follow up, after the increase, was NOT scheduled. You're right!

Your question, whether or not I've lost weight, poses another possibility. I was a body builder, some years ago, utilizing aerobic activity. I still experienced sleep deprivation, but not to the extent I have now. I am treated for depression and PTSD, with medication, which has slowed my desire for activity.

I also posted a previous message about a DPAP unit. I am curious to its benefit over the CPAP.
