I understand your concerns. Sleep apnea usually requires treatment with a CPAP. The best approach for now is to obtain the sleep study and get an appointment with an sleep clinic. The sleep clinic will prescribe the machine if your study shows the severe sleep apnea. If you don't have the study the clinic can repeat the study and start treatment ASAP. Let me know if you have any other questions.
I think looking for cushing syndrome is a priority. You should also check on checking the pressure and setting on the CPAP. Sometimes is a ggod idea to repeat an sleep study specially if the last one was more than a year ago.
