Apneoea and epilepsy


In addition, to my other health problems, I have had (in the past) epileptic attacks mainly visible in EEG during hyperventilation. Because of high number ahi (106 per hour), dr has set a high pressure on cpap machine. When the mask comes off I really feel/hear it. Did anyone find an increase in epileptic attacks because of use of cpap machine?
I know the actual lack of sleep, in my case, is more gift for an epileptic than the machine, though I do have headaches/migraines more often than before starting to use the machine.
