Hello and welcome to HealingWell. I am sorry to read of your problems. I do suspect you are experiencing high anxiety with the many concerns you have so do take a look at the Anxiety Forum.
If you find yourself gasping for air or waking up frequently throughout the night, talk to your doctor: You may need to be screened for obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that can leave you exhausted during the day. Don't give up on finding a Dr. that will work with you.
Diagnosis of sleep apnea involves an overnight study
at a sleep lab, or in some cases, a home test
that monitors your breathing and vital signs while you sleep.
One of the main symptoms of sleep apnea is snoring as Joy mentioned, so many patients are alerted to their problem by a spouse or bed partner.
CPAP, BiPAP, and Bi-Level products are all used for sleep apnea. My FIL uses the CPAP device.
Take a big breath and know that we are here to support you.
