Hello I am a 31 year old male with no previous medical history.
Over the past six months I have developed sleep apnea which has gotten progressively more acute. My symptoms are suddenly waking up gasping for air, sometimes I find my vision blurring and the sensation that blood isn't reaching my fingers. This is gotten steadily more acute for the last month, to the point, where I have episodes almost every night.
In addition I seem to have trouble with shortness of breath during the day time as well. I will just be sitting around watching television and suddenly feel like I am not getting enough air. I have also noticed trouble swallowing food (like a constriction/obstruction in the upper part of my throath).
I have been feeling something like a palpitation in my chest over the last week. It seems to get stronger when I eat, otherwise I notice a disturbance once every couple of minutes or so.
I am currently seeing a doctor and have undergone and overnight sleep apnea test, waiting on the result of that.
Any help with my systoms would be greatly appreciated, I have been worried that I have cardiac problems, given my latest symptoms.
