    Post CPAP masks

    For a while, I used to wake up in the morning with a severe headache. I tried having coffee to get rid of it, but it never works. Even if I sleep for a long time at night, I would still feel sleepy and sleep during the daytime. This has been going for a while, and we decided to consult a sleep specialist. The doc asked my wife whether I snore when sleeping, which I did. He asked me if I feel tired and get annoyed by things, which was actually true as I used to get angry with my wife for little things. The doctor decided to take an in-home sleep test to monitor my breathing and oxygen levels and to see the breathing efforts when worn.
    After the study, the doctor suggested appropriate treatment options and said that I was to have CPAP as it was the right one as my treatment option. He prescribed me to a CPAP provider. The doctor helps me familiarise myself with the difference between CPAP, Auto CPAP and other machines if we intend to buy from another source. We decided to buy from another source after comparing it with the provider that the doctor said. It was more expensive and couldn't afford it. We came across a couple of comparatively cheaper providers, but as we were not familiar with buying them, could someone help and advise me on which to buy and what requirements are to be considered and look for?

    This article doesn't discuss specific providers but does give some information that might help. It's from January 2019:
