I don't fit the normal profile for sleep apnoea (healthy weight, non-smoker, occasional drinker etc) but I am convinced that my AF is linked to an occasional problem I have with Sleep Apnoea. I have woken from my sleep on a number of occasions struggling to catch my breath, heart racing fast and aware that I have stopped breathing for a while. This only happens when I sleep on my back. Has anyone here got experience of a similar sleep/AF connection?
