Has anyone experienced a steep increase in migraines and chest pains when you use cpap? I’m in week 6, and have had some headaches worse than any I’ve ever had. Today it was pretty miserable, despite spending the day in an awesome workshop. It finally let up this evening for a couple of hours.

Now I have the mask on and the headache started as soon as the cpap started. Anyone had this?

Is your sleep apnea considered moderate or severe, Aletha?

High end of moderate. AHI 25. Severe is 30+

No, mine improved drastically.

Yes. Despite improving AHI numbers I went through a painful phase of repetitive headaches. Maybe it was apnea-related or maybe from work stress. I don’t know.

No better

Please, if you have not already done so, contact your Doctor for further testing. I have not heard of these symptoms worsening after starting treatment.

Ive had really bad headaches and found that increasing the humidity in my machine worked wonders!
