RE: stomach bloating
Welcome to the forum. I will leave helpful comments to someone who has the same machine that you have. We will need a few more specifics like the model number of your machine. If you remove the water chamber from your humidifier and turn it upside down there is a sticker that has the model number. The model number is a 3 digit number with a "P" after it - like 660P. That will tell our members that are knowledgeable about Respironics machines exactly which one you have.

It would also be helpful for all if you would download the Sleepyhead software (free) and put it on your computer. Then if your computer does not have an SD card reader built in, a small investment will get you one and you can download the data from your machine's SD card and find out a lot about what is going on every night and you can relay that information to the forum to make it reasonable for someone to give you some advice.

Best Regards,
