Re: Could I have sleep apnea?

You have all the signs of sleep apnea and I speak from experience. I had it for years and never knew it, but would wake up in the middle of the night, gasping for breath. However, the next day I would be fine and this did not seem to happen all the time-to my knowledge. One Christmas morning, I got up and had NO energy and I am a person who is loaded with energy. The sleep apnea had caught up to me! So, I had a sleep study test done and now am on a machine. Please do yourself a favor and go have a test done because if you need a machine, it could save your life. Sleep apnea untreated can lead to very serious issues.
