In brief: Several

People with osa can be fatigued, gain weight, have headache upon awakening, significant high blood pressure, very excessive sleepiness, depression, sexual dysfunction, muscle aches & pains, poor job peroformance, increased motor vehicle accidents and many many more.
Of course, they snore! marital and relational difficulties may be present as well. Just get a sleep study! u will be glad u did!

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.
