The gas will go away. It is common. You could try to elevate the head of your bed.
When you lay on your back, your machine has to fight gravity. There's a few things you can do.
- wait it out until the gas goes away then increase the pressure
- increase the pressure now while you are already going though the gas thing
- sew a little pocket into a tshirt and put a tennis ball in it. That will help you to not lay on your back
- just wait to see what happens.
If your machine is data capable, what does the data tell you? If you are snoring but the AHI is low, don't worry about it.
Glad you are sleeping though!

Its a compromise. Some folk said raising the head of the bed by couple of inches (bricks) helps with gas
