Hi I am new to the group. I have never been a great sleeper but the last couple of years I’ve been having several awakening after midnight. About a year ago I started to wake up really groggy and lightheaded on most days. On days I didn’t wake up groggy I usually would get a lightheaded /super fatigue that would hit me from 11am-2pm. Worst feeling ever, just feel lifeless and near passing out. It will usually pass by 4pm to some degree. Some days I just pass out around 3 for 20 minute nap. Oh and alcohol the night before makes for a brutal next day.
General symptoms seem to be dry eyes, eyes take longer to focus when I wake up. I’ve have pretty bad floater the past year. Sore throat was lingering and did an endoscopy to determine I have gerd. I saw and ENT who said my septal deviation is pretty bad as well. Will go back and get a CT next month. I have had random palpitations for the past 8 years. All testing here is pretty normal however. Also wore a CGM to rule out hypoglycemia. My annual blood labs are normal.
Had some sleep studies and have a milder apnea. Hoping the CPAP resolves these issues. If not I assume I need to probe more cardiology or neurologist.
I’ll update when I get my CPAP this month.
