I have sleep apnea and it's a lot like this. I have central and obstructive (mechanical) mix. Without the machine I am in for hellish insomnia, and lately I take trazodone (sedative/antidepressant) which helps me achieve the much-needed REM sleep, though it feels like I shouldn't knock myself out without this respirator sort of device anyway.
As for the hypercoagulation, I'm sad to say my health care provider assigned cardiologist would not even hear it, because I dont have the sort of insurance (or any) that would pay for any fancy extra test or doctor without a lot of paperwork. But I'm sure blood thickening is part of my symptomology, like 100% sure. I get this weird dull vascular pain in my armpits, and I also have treatment-resistant HBP, well yeah thats hypercoagulation, well tell that to the doctors that don't understand Lyme-literacy and co-infections nor their symptoms.
Also, look at HPA axis disruption, which a beta-blocker (toprol, metoprolol) may help somewhat, adrenally anyway, good luck.
I also tested and have central and obstructive...but it's much better - so my husband says anyway. He used to hear me - I'd stop breathing...and then take a gasp for air...not doing that anymore.
Maybe that's why I'm not waking during the night anymore.
I'm going to do a re-test - wear the monitor and see if my test results for sleep apnea improves.
