Sleep Apnea: Hopefully I am interpreting your question correctly, that you are having difficulty sleeping due to positioning problems, which can indicate an obstructive problem. This is why i would be recommending a work-up for osa obstructive sleep apnea (which includes a polysomnogram - sleep study- if at consult you display some of the many risk factors for this problem). Otherwise tighter asthma control?
