In brief: Polysomnogram

It will require a polysomnogram (sleep study) to determine the exact cause of your symptoms.
Talk with your physician about consultation with a sleep specialist. Sleep specialists are often pulmonologists, otolaryngologists or neurologists. After this is more fully assessed - a treatment plan can be developed.
