What would make it sound bubbly when breathing and feel like rubbing at sternum? 31/f overweight but healthy

Hard to tell

Smoking
we need to have more informations such as history of smoking, do you cough a lot, do you have any pain when you breathe, a bubble sound may be an indication of air passing through a fluid, chronic bromchitis, or fistula between trachea and esophagus; you probably need to see a doctor for further evaluation

Difficulty breathing I am over weight bmi is 40.0+ last i checked I've noticed when I lay in bed at night on my back I struggle to get my breath I have to roll on my side or stomach is this due to my overweight? I've also been snoring really loud and some

Yes

Breathlessness
Having a BMI over 30 indicates higher risk of obstructive sleep apnea. At 40+ extremely high risk. Snoring is found in at least 80% of people with sleep apnea. You need to see a doctor about a sleep study and get treatment. Sleep apnea puts you are risk for high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes and a host of other problems.

My boyfriend is 22 a little over weight and snores and stops breathing for sometimes 20 or more sec at a time. Could this be sleep apneak?

Probably

Sleep
What you describe sounds like sleep apnea, a condition where one stops breathing intermittently during sleep. See your doctor or sleep specialist to confirm the diagnosis.

Yes

Is using a humidifier actually effective in helping with your breathing?

Depends on the need

Open-uri20131222-26577-1n0mer3
In the south we have AC but no one has a furnace with built in humidifier like some places up north.During real cold snaps,a humidifier is a must,to counter the dry heat, often plunging humidity to 10% which produces headaches,coughs, nose bleeds, sore throats,etc.I recommend they be on if the heat is on.Vaporizers make a mist which helps wash the airway with droplets, this can really help coughs.

How effective is metformin for ovulation in PCOS women that are not diabetic or overweight?

Should help

Diabetes
Metformin is often first line treatment for PCOS, even in women who are not overweight and don't have diabetes. Insulin resistance is usually still a component of PCOS which contributes to the menstrual and hormonal irregularities. Metformin increases insulin sensitivity which is the reason it is such a good medication for PCOS.
