Can I have sleep apnea with these symptoms?
I've been reading up on this condition, however, I am still not sure if that may be my problem. I do not want to go to the doctor for no reason. I was hoping that someone with this condition can help me find out if I do need to go see a doctor. My symptoms are sleepiness during the day. Some days I am so sleepy that I am irritable and just not fun to be around. I am usually tired like I had no sleep the night before or as if I had been doing a lot of work, which is usually not the case. I cannot remember a night when I got less that 8 hours of sleep. I usually get 8 to 10 hours every night. Mostly 9 or 10. However, when I get up, I am dizzy and tired and I definitely do not feel well rested. I think twice before getting out of bed because I still feel tired. When I do get up I do not usually feel sleepy then, only tired. It is during the course of the day that i become sleepy. Sometimes very sleepy that I have to get up and do something or I will fall asleep. I am always tired. I forgot to add that I do not snore, at least I don't think, but I really don't think so.

sounds like sleep apnea, but hard to tell. You definately need to go to the dr's and have a sleep study to be able to diagnose it.

I'm agreeing that you should go to the doctor. Even if it isn't sleep apnea, it could be something else. It just doesn't sound right that you are tired even after that much sleep.

I have sleep apnea and have a CPAP machine. You are describing "excessive daytime sleepiness" which is one of the criteria to have a sleep study done, which I recommend for you. Even though you think you are getting 9 hours of sleep, you may not be. You may be dropping you oxygen level down so low during the night, you... More
