Hi Indra
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
You have Sleep apnoea syndrome.You should consider this very important and get evaluated completely.This can be as dangerous as lethal.Deviated nasal septum could be associated with other anatomical deformities in throat causing these symptoms.
I advise you to visit your ENT surgeon and get evaluated properly.
Take care
