Hello......
Thanks for your query. OSA/Obstructive sleep apnoea is indeed a difficult condition to deal with. It is associated with anxiety and depressive symptoms.Effective treatment for OSA includes CPAP/Continous positive airway pressure and at times surgical procedures like uvulopalatopharnygeoplasty. You can also contact a clinical psychologist to learn stress reduction strategies. You require a psychiatric evaluation for anxiety/depressive disorder. With effective multi-discplinary management you should be fine. You an also try yoga/meditation/breathing relaxation exercises along with weight reduction measures.
