Hand numb and sweating. Why do I snore? Sleep apnea?

About once a week I wake up with a numb left hand and sweating... It usually happens only about 1 to 2 hours after I fall asleep and then once I wake up and sit up for a little while it goes away and I sleep fine the rest of the night. I am 25 years old male, I know I snore pretty bad so I m wondering if maybe its sleep apnea?

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. you are getting the numbness only when you are sleeping and also sweating. It suggests that it may be cervical spondilosis with more effect. that is why you are getting the sweating as well. other possibilities are cardiac involve ment.
I advise you to consult a general physician for diagnosis and treatment. you may have to undergo DIGITAL XRAY OF THE CERVICAL SPINE, ECG TMT and other routine tests for confermation of the problem.
Besides i advise you some diet recomendations as Avoid taking potato, othe tubers, tomato, fish and other sea foods to avoid orthopedic involvement.
Wishing for a quick recovery and thanks for calling.
