so.... as far as I can tell I haven't had a swollen uvula since starting cpap a few years ago... this morning it is. I got a new and more comfortable full face mask a couple of months ago and found my slightly high blood pressure dropped... I woke having trouble swallowing... and checked in the mirror and my uvula was quite large.. maybe it was just an allergy thing as my husband woke up sneezing this morning and said he had hay fever... ? I have humidifier on and fixed pressure is 14.

I have not heard of anyone developing such a condition from CPAP use.
It's summer where you are; perhaps allergies.
They make Hypoallergenic filters for the ResMed machines. You might try them.
A visit to your GP would seem wise.
If you experience trouble breathing, you should dial 999 (or whatever number is used for emergency services in your location.)

Good to hear from you again.
You might mention this to your doc.
Good luck to you and hang in there for more responses to your post.
