Hi Rich, welcome to Apnea Board. I split your post into it's own thread because it's a different issue that the thread you posted in.

If you've been on Bi-PAP for 3 years already with no such symptoms, it's probably a good guess that this condition was not initially caused by your BiPAP. It's likely caused by other issues and perhaps exacerbated by the higher pressures of the BiPAP.

You might have an inner ear infection - or possibly allergic reactions... it is springtime here in the U.S. - a lot of pollen out there causing respiratory issues. These can cause vertigo.

I'd check with a doctor on this... it could be something completely unrelated to BiPAP.

An interesting one to add to the list of possibilities, although maybe really rare (?): cerebrospinal fluid leak

I was reading the clinician manual for my machine and it's listed as one of the contraindications for use. A quick google search confirms dizziness as a symptom.
