But even looking back on it now, I had symptoms that went beyond sleep apnea. I thought that maybe the oxygen
deprivation was causing the cognitive, balance issues, headaches, and numbness. I wanted to believe this even though I did not have hardly any desaturation during my sleep study. My sleep doctor even told me that my symptoms were not all consistent with sleep apnea. Now, I'm not falling asleep driving anymore, which is a relief. I can actually sit down at work without passing out.
