Hi :)

Some background info on me - I'm 26, female, overweight.

Last night my fiance wok me up while I was sleeping and said that I was jolting in my sleep likei had been startled. He says I do it intermittently - not every night, and maybe 5 minutes apart on the nights I do do it. I do sleep on my stomach, but I never snore. He also said my breathing doesn't seem different. I do wake up 2 -3 times in the middle of the night, but its not from jolting awake and then gasping for air, it's to drink some water and roll over. I just don't think I sleep well. I am under a lot of stress (full time grad student, full time stressful job, 25 hr/week internship) and don't often get 8 hours of sleep.
Does this sound like sleep apnea? I thought if you had it, it occurred every night and more frequently than every 5 minutes.

Thanks for any help :)
