Breathing problem

I have difficulty in breathing and i sleep with opening my mouth and drooling saliva from it. What was it?

NITHIN there could be so many reasons for your problem. I would like to know what is your age and body weight. Smoking, alcohol, use of sleeping pills, sinus infection and post nasal drip, lying down immediately after eating and heart-related issues like heart failure and chronic lung infections can cause difficult breathing while sleeping. I would suggest you to exercise regularly. If you are overweight reduce it. Quit smoking and alcohol. Consult an ENT specialist if you have ENT problems. See a cardiologist/pulmonologist if any associated heart or lung problems.
