Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
it could be due to narrowing of your throat when you lay down. this can cause sleep apnea and trouble breathing and severe snoring when you sleep.
are you overweight? excessive fat and tissue around your throat can cause wheezing when you lay down and can cause sleep apnea as well.
you could also have gerds or acid reflux which can be worse when you lay down
