Greetings!!
I have had about all the symptoms, testing that you all are talking about. Go to a good Sleep /Pulmonary Physician because sleep apnea can cause alot of these issues. Even mild sleep apnea needs treated. I was resistant because of the stagmia of toting along a machine everywhere I go and me being a Nurse thought Not me. But I was wrong. It will prevent future problems, like Heart failure, heart attacks, it helps in weight loss, and the big one is stroke, and it will save your life. So most insurance companies pay for both the study and the machine. If you have any more question email me.
