Many: Sleep apnea can cause many of the symptoms you described although it's unlikely to cause all of them. If you have sleep apnea, treat it to see which symptoms will improve.

Sleep Apnea: Obstructive sleep apnea or osa causes less oxygen to your brain. The body tries to make up for the lack of oxygen with hypertension, diabetes, kidney problems, acid reflux, etc. Daytime fatigue causes yo to overeat, gain weight, and the weight gain makes osa worse. Which adds to depression and anxiety. Simply sleeping on your side, and avoiding gerd may work. See www.Grossaninstitute.Com.
