Your : Your symptoms are consistent with sleep apnea, probably related to being so overweight (>200 pounds). This condition puts more stress on your heart, raises your blood pressure, and can even result in a heart attack or stroke. Please see your physician for further evaluation. Your evaluation will probably include a sleep study. Be careful. This is a very dangerous condition.
