Has anyone here got jaw surgery?

For me, when I initially started getting aerophagia it was minimally bugging me. So I was not in a rush. A call to the doctor quickly got me on track a mask fitting. I also switched to a biPAP which helped a lot. A couple years later aerophagia started up again but this time very intensified (full burps and wake-ups), only large drops of pressure kept it at bay. I dropped it from 14 to 12, a few months later down to 10, a few more months later down to 9...thats when I started looking seriously at surgeries.

For me turning on the ERP setting to 3 on my ResMed completely resolved the aerophagia. Why is ERP setting turned on not the standard to begin with? Does it cause issues with keeping the airway open or something?
