Resolved Question:

My wife is awakened in the night three or four times with a racing heart. This subsides quite quickly. She has a leaking heart valve and is due for an angiogram in the next few weeks. She has been told that this might be due to snoring! She does not suffer during the day from this problem, even when walking or going upstairs. She is 75 and is otherwise in good health.
