I was diagnosed with MILD sleep apnea in May of 2005. I put "mild" in caps only because the symptoms associated with it were anything but. Although my events were in the "mild" category as far as frequency, my oxygen desaturations were moderate and I was a fatigued, exhausted walking zombie, basically.

Going on CPAP therapy has given me my life back. Please consult your physician and get yourself on therapy. If you are depriving your body of oxygen nightly, it leads to all sorts of health-related issues, including hypertension, migraines, loss of energy, fatigue, mood swings, and the list goes on.

I have since renewed my energy levels, lowered by borderline BP to the point of not needing medication for it anymore, have started to exercise and have lost 20 lbs. It is a God send to be put on therapy. Even though it takes a lot of getting used to in the beginning, it is worth every moment of it.

Not sleeping is one of the worst things that can happen to you. You need to see your sleep study report to see how much time was spent in Stage 3 and 4 sleep, and your REM percentage. That would also tell you a lot since restorative sleep takes place in Stages 3 and 4. I wish you the best.
