Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
CPAP machines can cause air in the stomach-gas and bloating. Lowering the CPAP pressure can help but do not do this without consulting your sleep specialist. Switching over to bilevel pressure or C-Flex may help you too. However nothing should be tried without consulting the specialist.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
