The only area of medicine Dr Stach covers is Parkinson's.
If you do not like the diagnosis of sleep apena you may want to get a second opinion. If you are over weighy you most likely have sleep apenea. This would account for your fatigue. If you are considered obease try and loose weight. This will help with the sleep apnea and fatigue. I can not help with the dizziness and involuntary movement of your arms and legs.
