Hello........
Thanks for your query. What you describe are features of OSA/Obstructive sleep apnoea. I would suggest you undergo an ENT evaluation initially. It requires a comprehensive management by psychiatrist, neurologist and ENT physician. The usual treatment options are CPAP/continous positive airway pressure and as a last resort a surgery called as uvulopalatopharngoplasty. Do clarify further if required.
