Could it be sleep apnea or related to sleep apnea?

Recently my doctor prescribed me a continuous oxygen monitor that measures my o2 levels during the day and I’ve found that my o2 levels go below 90 frequently. At the same time I’m notified with a vibration on a finger from the sensor, I notice that I’ve stopped breathing for a while. This seems to happen a lot and on every day. I don’t even realise at the time to be honest. It’s just my o2 levels frequently drop.

I was looking at some kind of hypoventilation syndrome maybe, because in certain positions such as leaning forward I breathe much better and deeper. But the normal upright standing posture or sitting posture it is very hard to breathe properly.
