Yes, it's a common effect. The CPAP machine pumps air into your stomach. One remedy is to lower the pressure, the other is to switch to a bi-level machine.

You should download and install SleepyHead. You'll be able to see if lowering the pressure is advisable.

The swallowing of air is called aerophagia. It does tend to go away as we adapt, and often we have to lower the pressure, at least temporarily, until the problem goes away. Mine never went away entirely, but it no longer bothers me. It just causes some extra flatulence at times.
