Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms. If you suspect sleep apnea, then, you should visit a specialist for evaluation and treatment.

You could consult either a sleep medicine specialist or pulmonologist or a neurologist.

For confirming the diagnosis, you would undergo a sleep study (polysomnography).

If confirmed, you would require CPAP trial.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
