Q.

Sleep apnea

Dear Dr, I had the sleep study and have moderate to severe REM related obstructive sleep apnea. Due to an endocrine problem I am obese. I'm going back to do the test wiht CPAP. I sleep very little . My average is 3,5 hours per night. It does affect mood, ability to handle stress/pressure, causes a person to be emotional, affects ability to concentrate and pay attention to detail? I cannot keep up with my new job. It's too overwhelming. I used to be an overachiever, and now I;m in trouble because my work is falling behind and I'm 'emotionally fragile'. I tried sleeping tablets, I just end up feeling more sleepy the next day. Why is that? I've started wondering if I'm not developing narcolepsy.
