Nasal swelling: What you describe could interfere with your sleep. I doubt it would cause sleep apnea. You may want to see an ENT for further evaluation

Yes: these findings can contribute to underlying OSA which is why it is something we look for during a sleep evaluation.

Deviated septum: Nasal obstruction can contribute to sleep apnea, get a sleep study and have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist,
