After start using CPAP, (45 days) I noticed my belly a little augmented, I am wonder if it can be caused by air pressure higher than should be, or anything else related to the CPAP parameters ?

PAP Mask: Practically tried them all.
PAP Machine: Use Phillips Respironics System One APAP with Aflex for mask testing
Humidifier: None
Pressure Setting: When testing, I use APAP with a range of 5-10

Is it painful or gas? Could be aerophagia.

Can be from pressure being too high, or from damaged upper esophageal sphincter. Check out my most recent video on it on my YouTube channel. On phone now, so linking directly is tough. Search channel for “aerophagia”.
