Cpap. Apneas low at pressure 11. Feel like I want it turned up. Why would I feel relaxed by machine & want more pressure? Daytime fatigue persists.

In brief: Recheck pressures
It is possible that the pressure is set too low-daytime fatigue should improve.
There are a number of ways to check. Repeat the sleep titration and test the pressure to be sure apneas are gone. Read out the memory from the CPAP machine you use and show to the doctor to see if it is operating properly. Get machine upgraded to an autopap which can adjust pressure within a range to your needs.
