My husband had triple bypass surgery 14 months ago. He is unable to lay or sleep on his left side because he can't breath. He is also experiencing shortness of breath and chest pressure although the Cardiologist said nothing is wrong with his heart. Anyone experiencing this?
I cannot sleep either side and The Dr. telling me nothing wrong with my heart. I have sleep apnea. It is my opinion that becuse of sleep-apnea my blood-oxygen level drops during sleep creating more work for my heart. You check to see wheter or not you have sleep apnea.
