CPAP causes nasal congestion
RE: CPAP causes nasal congestion
I have had regular congestion for many years due to anatomical oddities. I had surgery which helped a little, but mostly I just have to live with it. Using a pap machine has not made it any worse. I take Mucinex before bed and use a spray of Flonase before masking up. I sleep largely on my back. That position helps any drainage run unnoticeably down my throat. Maybe this would work for you.

Best of luck with whatever you try!
