Sleep apnea, use machine, have feeling of truck hit, eye heaviness after waking and throughout the day. Any ideas?

I am a sleep apnea patient and religiously sleep with my machine every night. I used to wake up and bounce out of Ned but lately I feel like a truck hit me from the moment I wake up and all day long! I have had blood work done with D low and am taking 5,000 iu s to make up for it but my eyes are SO HEAVY ALL DAY LONG and the water all morning until around noon. Do you have any idea what might be wrong?

I want to stress that a given symptom in medicine can have multiple causes and the treatment depends upon the cause. Back to your question, the symptoms which have posted would suggest a possibility of poorly treated sleep apnea. Further, i dont know what exactly the pressure you need to treat the sleep apnea. For example, if a person need a pressure of 8 and he uses ordinary CPAP machine he will not improve with this, he may benefit with auto CPAP. Another patient who needs a pressure of 14, he would benefit with BiPAP rather than CPAP.I strongly advise you to get examined by a sleep specialist and repeat a sleep study. This will give us an idea about your health condition and we will be able to guide you better.
hope this will clarifies
