My husband is a stubborn man and thinks he knows the answer

Customer Question

My husband is a stubborn man and thinks he knows the answer to any of his medical problems. He goes to bed late, around 1.30 am and wakes between 9.00 - 9.15am. He says he feels rested but every day by 11.00am he says he is just drained of any energy and then goes off to bed to sleep for another 1 or 2 hours. He does snore at night, is 75 years old and takes some medication for his health problems. Not sure what he needs to do to try and see what is causing the problem. Thanks...Patricia

Thanks for this question Patricia

This is VERY likely to be sleep apnea.

He needs a sleep study.

Treatment will be a CPAP machine

Hello Patricia,

Can you let me know his height, weight, and on what medications he is?

Sometimes, a mere overweight or obesity can cause snoring.
