Is anxiety causing light headedness, dizziness, and clamminess?

I am a 28 year old female, 5'4" and 250 pounds. I take 50 mg of zoloft for anxiety. I have been having trouble with waking up from my night time sleep (or naps) feeling very light headed, dizzy, and clammy. I am worried that this is something other than my anxiety.

thanks for choosing healthcare magic

i think it may be happening due to your weight. Your heavy could lead to obstructive sleep apnea which can cause morning difficulty in awaking, light headache, dizziness. It is not the part of your anxiety. To rule out this, get yourself investigated for polysomnography.
