... night I do not drink, i cannot sleep. I sleep on my side and everytime im about to fall asleep, i jump up gasping for air. It feels as though both my mouth and my nose is clogged. I assumed Apnea, but when ive had alcohol, i go right to sleep. I know they say alcohol is bad for Apnea, but ive been awake for over 24 hours. I have an appointment for an Endoscopy on June 10th. But in the meantime, what should i do? Thank you
