Our expert says:
One sleep apnoea episode would be one too many. Many people don’t wake up when they get apnoea but eventually just start breathing again because their CO2 levels in the blood get so high. Have they tested your electrolyte levels in your blood (potassium, sodium etc?) Just try and get enough rest at the moment and avoid pain medication with codeiene or mebrobamate in it.
