Sleep Apnea: There is a reasonable chance this is a sign of sleep apnea. You could have a sleep study performed. If you have sleep apnea you have the answer. If you do not then there may be a primary arrhythmia that will be detected during the test. Ask your health care professional to help check this out for you. Simple EKG monitoring might also be revealing but a sleep study kills two birds with one stone.
