I am really trying to be tactful here but, does anyone else who uses the c-pap machine wake up with gas or the feeling like the tummy is gonna pop? I would imagine that since all of that air is being forced down, it might be a side affect. I asked the sleep study tech and she said no one had stated that as a symptom. Just wondering.

The humming of the machine lulls me to sleep. Good luck to all!
