I've used CPAP for a year now and it has worked great! However, I have recently gotten a head cold for the first time since using CPAP. I've been using Vicks Nose Spray for 5 days now so I can breathe better at night. The past five nights after I've been asleep for around 3 hours, my stomach starts rumbling very bad and I have frequent gas every few minutes, belching sometimes. This goes on for a couple hours till finally the Diarrhea hits. The Diarrhea last for several hours until about 11am then stops and I'm fine the rest of the day.. The whole routine starts over again at night. Sleep a few hours, stomach rumbles, gas, belching, Diarrhea for several hours. It has done this for 5 days in a row now. I saw my family doctor today and they don't really know what to think about the Diarrhea spells for the past few nights. Thinking I possibly have a virus. I didn't mention CPAP to them. I'm just now thinking, wondering if the CPAP could be causing my issue?

Stop washing your mask with raw chicken, that should fix the problem!
