Brief Answer:
Check on your snoring.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome To HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.. Such kind of issues are usually seen in people suffering from Sleep apnea that could be due to obesity, excessive snoring.
I would recommend you to go for a sleep study to check for that.
Start exercises in the morning.
Walk after all meals. Avoid alcohol and smoking in case you do.
Get your thyroid profile and blood sugar checked if not done yet.
I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query, please ask me.
