i wondered if anyone would be able to offer myself and my wife some advice. My wife is a chronic athsmatic and now has had all treatment available, she is on inhalers, tablets and a nebuliser to assist with controling her condition. She has been very bad for the last three months and has done a sputum test and had a chest x-ray, the sputum test came back showing no infection but the x-ray shows that her lung capacity has reduced even more and has been warned that she will have to stop work at some time in the not so distant future as her lungs will no longer be able to cope. Over the last month her breathing while sleeping has been very irratic, she goes from snoring very loudly to very shallow breathing for a while until she eventually takes a deeper breath and breaths normally for a short while before it happens again and when i try to awake her i cant. She is my main carer as i have mobility problems and i have 4 children which she cares for as well as myself but at the moment she is constantly tired. I wondered if this could be a form of sleep apnea?
Many thanks for any help that you could offer
