Insomnia, which affects most people at some time or other, is not being able to sleep when you want to.

Lung and respiratory symptoms can come from any condition that affects the breathing system sinuses, throat, airways or lungs.

Whilst some people rarely snore and others snore quietly, there are many who snore every night.
