Hang in there for more answers to your questions and good luck to you.
Definetly get a sleep study done. It will at least give you a diagnosis either way and peace of mind.

High blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid problems, heart disease, etc.

Hi Grasshopper 1917,
I agree, get the sleep study done without delay. If possible, hold out for an "in clinic" study with titration. Based on my experience, the less costly "at home" sleep study does not tell the whole story. If insurance is involved the "at home" study may be pushed but you may be able to appeal that and get one done in a clinic.
