Nasal cradle masks are waking me up with noise!

Post subject:  Nasal cradle masks are waking me up with noise!

Hello, all.

I have been using the DreamWear full face, but it has been kind of bothering my teeth. I can't loosen it anymore, or the mask will make farting noises whenever I move. I ordered the Tap Pap, which is on it's way, so I figured I would try using another nasal mask I already have to get accustomed to keeping my mouth closed while I sleep.

I have two similar nasal cradle masks: DreamWear nasal and the ResMed N30i. I used the DreamWear nasal last night and was reminded of why I stopped using them and switched back to the full face... Each of these masks, after sleeping with them for several hours, begin to wheeze/whistle and wake me up.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on with this noise? My humidity is set at 3, heated hose temperature at 83 degrees.

I don't have this issue with the DreamWear full face, which is strange because the nasal cradle concept is the same.

For reference, I have a nose ring, but I don't see how that would cause the issue if it's not happening with the DreamWear FF.

Thank you for any insights!
