I have found sleeping very difficult, I wake up in the night gasping for air and coughing. I have severe asthma caused by many different problems :(, I'm also recovering from a bactiral chest infection and viral flu. I spoke to my consultant and asked if it was possible that I have got sleep apnea, he looked at me in his usual arrogant smug way with a little giggle and said it's mainly large middle age men that get this and your neither of them! I really don't get on with my consultant and he treats me like I'm stupid !
I also have a muscular disorder at the base of my tongue which is floppy and makes my breathing noisy. The muscle is called the ginoglossus, which this also plays a massive effect on sleep apnea.
I'm not a confident speaker (I'm a stammerer) so I'm finding it difficult to speak up, does anyone have any advice??? Please
