Is severe morning tiredness a symptom of sleep apnea?

For the last year now I have been experiencing morning tiredness until around noon. I have had test done from feet to heart and no one seems to know what is going on. I have lost all interest in work, play and life in general because of this. My cardiac doctor had a heart monitor implanted since July 2015 and found a few instances of afib but nothing severe. Can it be sleep apnea?

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have sudden foot pain. Well there can be many reasons for symptoms you mention in query like snoring , acid reflux , alcohol and stimulants , nighttime hunger or sleeping apnea . I would suggest you to consult general practitioner for proper examination . Doctor may order blood test ,check vitals and also order sleep study . Doctor may recommend Cpap machine after reviewing the results of sleep study . Doctor may also refer you to ENT specialist for other nasal problems like anatomical abnormalities . For now do regular exercises , avoid alcohol and caffeinated product .

Hope your concern has been resolved.
