Possible Hereditary sleep disorder
After many years of trying to find what is causing my drop in sex hormones, weight gain, brain fog, and fatigue I realize it has come down to sleep (long story short). I collect allot of fat on my chest just like my father did (despite a healthy diet). He died in his 50's.
My father snored, I snore.
We gather fat in the same places.
My fathers hands would shake, and I'm starting to see it in my own hands at a milder level.
My sex hormones are quiet low and I gather my father's were but he died before he got tested.
I have found, by just chance, that every time my condition improves, meaning I can lose weight, concentrate, and have more energy, I have managed to get excessive amounts of sleep. I had to leave my jobs to do this (several).
I get occasional sleep apnea when I am under stress. My father seemed to stop breathing in his sleep some times (due to a sudden stop in snoring).
I believe I have a sleep disorder and my father did too. It's the root of all my problems.
I don't know where to start looking for the root cause, can anyone help?
