I'm going to try these settings again tonight.

I agree. You want to be careful that you don't induce aerophagia.

RE: Managing flow limitations
Setting my pressure at Min=7.6, Max=9.2, and EPR=3 does seem to have helped quite a bit with the flow limitations.  I'm now mostly seeing CAs with a few OAs or Hypopneas.  

I tried increasing my Min pressure a little more to get ahead of the OAs and ran into aerophagia so I backed that off.  I guess I'll try a full week or two at these settings to see if I have enough quality sleep to start feeling better.

That looks really good! But remember that 1 night doesn't make a trend. Stick with these settings for awhile and see how you feel.

If CA's go up, you can always lower EPR.
