Q.

SNORING

Hubby is 50, overweight. He snores the second he puts his head down. He sometimes stops breathing, jerks in his sleep. He naturally breathes heavy all the time, chest wheezes, nose constantly blocked. He can be sitting on the couch and next second he is asleep, snoring. It affects my sleeping and I wake up tired and miserable every day. I can sometimes hear him breathe heavy from the next room. It is annyoing and putting strain on me. Tx

What you describe is highly suggestive of obstructive sleep apnea.  Your husband needs a sleep study and you need to see a relevant specialist who deals with this.  Usually it's a pulmonologist.
