In brief: Snoring

The symptoms are daytime fatigue, snoring, frequent waking, frequency of night time urination, but tiredness during the day very hard to deal with.
Get diagnosed by sleep study and treated. Apnea carries risk of heart attack, stroke and other nasty things. Your family doctor can arrange the study and most insurances cover it. You will feel so much better after a good nights sleep.

I would add snoring as a very common sign or symptom.

In brief: R/O OSA

OSA can be suggested by history and physical.
Excess snoring/daytime sleepiness/apneic episodes/ aM headaches. And the Exam obesity/small oral airway/collar size>18. The definitive test is a PSG with split night/CPAP titration. I would request copy of sleep study and get a second opinion if you are not satisfied with the options. You are young CPAP can be difficult to tolerate. ENT FOR UPP EVAL.
