Heavy breathing

My husband breaths very loud and is always short of breath. He snores alot and it affects my sleeping. I can hear him breath from the other room. He just sits down, falls asleep and snores. It is annyoing to watch tv with him, all you hear is wheezing and breathing even snoring sounds while he is awake. I wear ear plugs in the house, especially when watching tv. He has bad sinus too.

There seems to be multiple problem here.  Firstly, he needs to have a sleep study for possible obstructive sleep apnea.  This is a dangerous condition which can shorten ones life span. You need to see a pulmonologist or sleep medicine doctor to get this test done.  Heavy breathing could be due to a number of other causes including heart problems or chronic lung problems.  These need to be properly checked out.
