In brief: Need a sleep test?

Obstructive sleep apnea, characterized by snoring, gasping, sleep deprivation and anatomical "asphyxiation" can lead to high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke and depression by robbing the brain of needed oxygen and deep sleep.
Chronic fatigue can lead to depression and death (sleep @ the wheel?). Get a sleep test asap. I have referred your query to dr. Ali for other causes of depression.
