CPAP and Sinus Drainage

HI All,

Well I recently started on CPAP for sleep apnea. Im finding when i wake up in the morning and blow my nose im getting think green yellow mucous, or if i breath in through my nose and bring it up from the back of my throat.

Ive always had some issues with sinuses and all...can the cpap machine with the humidifier i use be helping drain my sinuses or vice versa?
