sleep problem

Postby helerjoey on Sat Nov 17, 2018 9:04 pm

I can't sleep facing upwards. I'm comfortable sleeping sideways. I'm having back problem that requires me to sleep facing up on my back. Some say it is respiratory problem that makes me sleep on sides.

If you cant sleep on your back, it could be that your airway is collapsing and in effect causing sleep apnea

give your GP a call and ask for a home sleep apnea test, or ask to be referred on to your regional sleep centre which is the best option.
