My wife has COPD but manages to control it thanks to the wonderful doctors at Grantham hospital. However, since my wifes father died (also a COPD sufferer) in January she has had some very bad nights. She sleeps but makes a noise from her nose and the back of her throat. It's similar to snoring but it isn't and is much louder and sounds sometimes as if she has a build up of fluid at the back of her throat. Does anyone else suffer (or has suffered) from this as it would be nice to sleep at night. We currently take turns to sleep but I don't half miss my cuddles.
