Hello,
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.

From the available description it appears hat your symptom meet the criteria of sleep apnea.
Feeling not fresh in the morning indicates that you are having apneac episodes in which there is difficulty in respiration because your airway is obstructed.
Being overweight is significant risk factor for sleep apnea and it is important to take exercise regimen to control weight.

I hope his is helpful for you.
Thanks and regards
