Possibly a silly question.. Air in stomach movement?
#1
Gross 
Ive noticed that now that i use a cpap machine I will be falling asleep and get this strange sensation in the center of my chest (could be confuse by heart rythm skipping), but suddenly it gets pushed down into my stomach.

So i was wondering if this is simply gas... is it a burp that formed on its own in my guts and the cpap pushed it down?

It happens a few times during sleep Huhsign

More likely it's air from the CPAP machine being pushed down into your esophagus. Happens to me all the time, and it eventually comes out the other end. Rolleyes
