The breathing problem occurs only at night time when I want to sleep. I have problems to breathe through nose and sometime through mouth also. I feel blockage and sometime a little pain on chest on the left side; the problem occurs only when I start sleeping and once I sleep there is no problem.

I recently went on vacation with a friend who said I snored very loud and had periods of not breathing. My husband and I do not sleep together because we both snore. I am finding that I am more tired recently than before. I have always had sinus infections and feel like my right nostril is always partially blocked. I have always said I would like to die in my sleep, but I am not ready yet.

After approximately each hour of being sleep, I am awake finding difficulties in breathing. I feel as if I have gone through snoring and feel pain in the throat or something disturbing. My brain has gone through short disturbing dreams as I feel mentally tired. Sometimes I remember those small events but not all. Very often getting stuck in traffic, losing my car or falling down from higher place.
