Just a question
Jul 11, 2006
Can sleep apnea cause lightheadedness, and headaches. I have been having lightheadedness for a couple of years now. It's really bad lately, and I can't drive because of it. I have almost every test imaginable, but a sleep study. I don't snore much, per my husband. But one night last year, I had to spend the night in the ER( thought it was a heart problem so they kept me-I was having really bad chest pains) and everytime I would go to sleep, the monitor went off. After a few hours of getting woke up by this, I finally asked the nurse why it kept beeping. She said it was apnea. I am at a loss at what to do next. I've went to neuros, ent's, cardios,
lyme disease expert, and now I'm going to a chiropractor to see if he can help with the lightheadedness. Does anyone have any input here. Thanks
