"Hi Sharon, I can empathise! For 18 years I had no problem at all, then recently both my mask and machine became obsolete and I'm really struggling with the new equipment. I don't actually use a CPAP machine, I use a NIPPY-3…"
"Hi Kath, thanks for the reply!
I've tried every size of (possibly) every available mask and they all leak. Thanks for the link ... I'll take a look.

I've had a quick chat with Marion today - she's been rather poorly lately and has been in hospital twice.

Good to hear you got the machine you needed Amelia, and we do have several people on the Nippy's - in fact one of our members, Marion from As I Live I + Breathe, has used one for years + is the author of the book we sell 'CPAP + Ventilator Secrets.'
Hi Amelia, Welcome to Hope2Sleep. I am relatively new on here and I've already had lots of help from Kath and useful discussions with her and other members too. I'm not using the same equipment as you, however, I suppose we may still encounter similar problems (although I hope you have none)! See you around. June

I had this CPAP machine nearly six years ago. I used is a handful of times and my wife said either it had to go or she would. It has sat in a cupboard in its box ever since and it needs to find a better home. I was astonished when I looked up to see…See More
"Sorry to head this Judy, and it could well be the fact that you're having to tighten the mask a little too much that's causing the jaw problems. It could also simply be that the mask isn't suitable for you, so worth asking your…"
