PAP machine causing nausea and dizziness?
I began using an APAP (auto positive airway pressure) machine at night for sleep apnea about 5 weeks ago. I was very happy that I adjusted fairly quickly to it. But about a week later, I began getting spells of nausea and dizziness. For the past several days, its been almost constant. I have been talking to another person that this is happening to, and reading on the internet of yet other people who are having problems. Its not common, but it sure would explain a few things for me. I was thinking it was hormones or gallbladder or even worse. I'm curious if any of you have ever come across this problem either with yourselves or someone in your family?
I guess the air pressure can possibly disturb things in our ears and cause this. I'm going to run a little experiment, and stop using it for several days and see if I feel better. But what a bummer if it ends up being the machine, since I'm sleeping better now. I guess there's always a price to pay for everything..........
