My brother has it. Was definitely weight related for him. He managed to lose weight for a while and it went away.

Hopefully it is just a temporary thing for you.

Can you play sports like 5 a side or squash?

My daughter suffered from this and had her tonsils/adenoids taken out which seems to have helped.

It’s a worrying thing for sure but at least you know now and can manage it.

No, she was too young at the time. The consultant thought it could be caused by her tonsils obstructing her airways.

Yeah, I have this too. Opted against the machine, and am waiting to be fitted with a brace that will basically force my jaw forward to keep my airway clear. They said my sleep test (which took place over night the night of the England vs Croatia WC match last summer ) showed I woke up something like 64 times an hour - which freaked me the fack out suddenly realising I've lived most of my adult life without proper sleep, and the impact that that has probably had on my life.

Mine definitely isn't weight related though, which is one of the reasons it took so long for the docs to get round to referring me to the Sleep Disorder Clinic. It was only when I started freaking my ex out when I'd stop breathing in my sleep, that I realised something might be up.

Hopefully last night was just a blip for you, mate, and your quality of sleep starts improving again soon.

I used to suffer with insomnia. May be stating the obvious but before going to bed stay off tablet/mobile devices etc. Take TV out of bedroom (if applicable).

Try to set a routine of going to bed at the same time (or as close as possible) each night. Avoid caffeine in the evenings, and/or cut down daily intake. At times I was drinking 5/6 cups of coffee a day.

Blackout curtains also helped me as need room to be in complete darkness

I had three years of really bad chest infections, struggling to breathe, coughing up blood and struggling to breathe....Turns out it was because I was sleeping in cold air, upped my room temperature and bought a bedside fan heater and haven't had an issue since....

Just had a Google..

This is the first study investigating the effect of ambient temperature on patients with sleep apnea. The obstructive apnea-hypopnea index was significantly higher at 16°C room temperature versus 24°C (P = 0.001) and at 20°C room temperature versus 24°C (P = 0.033).
