RE: Severe Aerophagia
Your flow pattern starting at 04.07.00 might indicate palatal prolapse. Some experts on flow patterns might want to confirm or deny it. Try taping your mouth to ensure that it is not mouth breathing. 
If it is persistent during the night, you must address it because it prevents you from exhaling fully and can lead to aerophagia. If so, you should consider using a nasal stent. See the Alaxo Hybrid Stent with CPAP—Therapy Thread 1 2 3 4 ).
