I have sleep apnea. Now whether it's connected to my A/P and depression I don't know. However, I do know that it is connected to my weight. I weigh about 50lbs more than I should and could stand to lose 70lbs to be even better. The more you weigh has a direct effect on how well you breathe during the day too. It's hard on your body. So, I'm not doing myself any favors. I also had a deviated septum that was repaired in 2005 I think and that has made a difference too. I now breathe better because of the surgery.
I know I really didn't answer your question. But if you feel that there is a problem, see you PCP and have him direct you to people who do sleep studies. I had to spend a total of three nights (not consecutively) at a sleep clinic attached to wires, tubes and the mask over my face. Now that I have the machine, I love it. I notice a huge difference when I sleep without it. I'm more fatigued, have less energy and am just down right tired without it.
I would do this sooner than later because it is a SERIOUS problem. Not to add more panic/anxiety for you or to scare you but people can die from sleep apnea. It literally means "no breath" "no air", you actually stop breathing for a time. Please, please get checked.
