For context, I’m a 21 year old male who is active and healthy. I recently entered a relationship for the first time three months ago, and for the past three weeks I have been staying at my boyfriend’s place during the shelter-in-place in California. He had mentioned numerous times before that I tend to snore in my sleep, with intermittent stops in my breathing, gasps for air that just turn in to big snores, tossing and turning, and sudden body jolts after my breathing stops. Beforehand I had always slept alone, and never had anyone to tell me that I was doing these things in my sleep.

Sometimes I wake up feeling apathetic and depressed, despite getting 9+ hours of sleep. I ALWAYS wake up in the morning feeling groggy and like I didn’t get a deep enough sleep. It seems that sleep apnea would explain these sporadic issues with depression and lack of motivation/energy, though it seems that sleep studies are out of the question during this pandemic. Are there any temporary solutions to this issue? Is there anything at ALL I can do without a CPAP or surgery in the meantime?
