What else causes flow limits?

What else causes flow limits?
Since the folks in here pointed out that I have an issue with flow limits, I first tried adjusting the EPR in line with suggestions. This didn't seem to help the flow limits but did increase my centrals.

 I then tried a cervical collar with EPR back to 'normal'. A bit of fiddling was required to adjust the fit so that it prevented chin tucking while allowing me to mouth breathe. I eventually got to the point where I could sleep with it all night but alas, flow limits are unchanged once again.

I have attached last night's graphs, one showing the flow limits and one is a zoom in on the breath waveform.

Can anybody tell me if this degree of flow limitation is indeed a problem that needs addressing and, if so, what else I could try please?
