You know you are having pain, but from the evidence given I don't see that you can know that this pain is being caused by the machine. A pressure of 7cm is less than 1% of the normal air pressure at sea level and it's hard to see how such a small change could cause this pain. There is either some underlying disease that makes you extra sensitive or there is a psychological reaction to the use of the machine. I am not belittling you - psychological pain is just as real and hurts just as much as "real" pain. As I know all too well.
IF it is shown by medical examination that there is no physiological cause for this pain you might consider some psychological counselling. This can be helpful as, again, I know from my own experience. If it is psychological pain it is still perfectly real and nothing to be ashamed of.
I am neither a Doctor, nor any other kind of medical professional.
Actually you know, it is what it isn't.
