Yes, I have had gas from using my cpap. Seems those with higher cpap pressures and/or those with a weak sphincter between the esophagus and stomach are most prone to it. From what I've read, it pretty much just goes with the territory unless you want to have the sphincter surgically repaired or find that a different type of cpap machine offends less.
