So either due to stuffy nose, you have been mouth breathing or due to acid reflux, airway mucosa is inflamed. This is the cause of uvular oedema and inflammation. Meet a good ENT Specialist who specialises in Sleep Apnoea Surgeries using this app who will assess the airway and treat you accordingly.
