Frequently reoccurring stomach issues.

Posted , 3 users are following.

so I keep having these issues where I'll either wake up with it or i will suddenly develop symptoms late at night.

it starts with very rotten burps, then I will get nausea and diarrhea. it will last about 24 hours and go away, and maybe a day or two later it will start over again.

I use a CPAP machine and I think this might be a cause? that I might need an auto titration CPAP.

    Hi Shylur614

    CPAP machines need regular cleaning. Do you clean yr machine regularly? as it can hold bacteria. Why not try and stop using the machine for a short while if you can and see if your symptoms stop. Other than that see your Sleep Apnea Consultant, you may need a new machine if you have had your CPAP machine for long time....

      Hi pippa58442

      A CPAP Machine is a machine that produces oxygen and is worn on the face by those who suffer from sleep apnea. It is worn at night or when one wishes to sleep and it supplies them with sufficient oxygen when they breathe thus stopping them waking several times during sleep. Sleep Apnea sufferers wake several times at night because they are unable to breathe in sufficient oxygen and the CPAP machine enables them to have a good nights sleep and enables them wake up refreshed....without the machine they feel as if they have had no sleep at all...
