I would suggest that your first port of call should be a lung specialist. Ask your GP for a referral.
You will first need to ensure that your chest is under control, and you need some expert advice. He will also be able to advise you whether or not you are a candidate fro sleep apnoea.
A sleep clinic will be able to diagnose sleep apnoea, and help with its treatment. However, it is quite a costly exercise, and a visit to a lung specialist is really your first step.
