24M, diagnosed with SA with AHI of 14. Been dealing with gradually worsening chronic fatigue and brain fog for 8ish years now. Still don’t know if all my problems stem from anxiety/depression, sleep apnea, or both. Couple questions:
What could cause sleep apnea in someone that is thin, young, with no other health issues? I don’t seem to have any anatomical issues either, don’t really snore.
Why don’t stimulants like caffeine, Adderall, Modafinil do anything to help the brain fog or fatigue? If SA was the issue, wouldn’t these at least somewhat help?
I feel like if nearly anyone were to get tested for sleep apnea, they would test positive for it but maybe not have any symptoms. Thoughts?
