Re: Sleep deprived/sleep problems... help!
He very well could have sleep apnea. Just from what you've said I would guess that he does to some degree. The chest pain wouldn't be caused by sleep deprivation but could be caused by sleep apnea. Breathing directly affects the heart. When I performed sleep studies and watched a patient have an apnea, i watched the heart very closely. It's common to see arrhythmias just from apneas. I've seen so many people who had hypertension, strokes, heart attacks, and sleep apnea was probably a contributing factor.
