Brief Answer:
Get done arterial blood gas analysis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Since you are having sleep apnea and thyroid issues, hypercapnia (raised blood carbon dioxide) can also cause chronic fatigue.
So get done arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis and sleep study.
If hypercapnia is there or your sleep apnea is deteriorating, you need to increase the pressure in CPAP machine.
Please let me know
1. Have you ever undergone ABG analysis?
2. What are your current CPAP pressures?
Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
