I am a 31-year-old male Canadian. I have asthma
. I have, had to collapse longs, in the period of less than two years. I have a thoracotomy in 2011. They found that I have boluses disease. Surgery went well all boulis were removed. Strengthen with bovine.
I live in a colder climate. I just got back from Mexico, Cancun. About a week ago, I have had a deep chest cold since my return.
I've been waking up in the middle of the night choking not being able to breathe. I also wake up a very sore throat. My girlfriend, says I do a lot of coughing in my sleep.
Question number one- Could the sudden waking up be sleep apnea?
My chest cold has seemed to improve. I understand what sleep apnea means.
q number two. What are some of the treatments for sleep apnea?
ok in these Crisis situations. I have a ventilator should I got some solutions, seems to work much better for me.? Is there scientific proof that these machines work better then puffers& inhalers?
I have been referred to a sleep clinic. Q3 – What it be worthwhile to completely rid myself of this chest cold before going in for a overnight evaluation?
