Have Apnea but ...

I have gone for sleep studies, had to wear the halter monitor for 24 hours, had an EKG and stress test. I do have a sleep apnea at 42, I stop breathing so I have a CPAP. The thing is:
1) I have a positive diagnosis of Fibromyalgia
A) widespread pain
B) exhaustion
C) weakness
2) I have suffered three episodes of Optic Neuritis
A) have had an additional three episodes of low vision with the same headache and muscle pain of the optic neuritis
B) have had spinal tap which found protein bands for MS
C) have had episodes of numbness and tingling in hands and feet
D) have had my hands and feet feel like they were on fire, they turned bright red
E) did not walk for a five month period because the nerve pain on the right side of my right ankle was so painful, I couldn't put any weight on my foot
After my sleep test I was told my heart rate went up to 180 while I was asleep. Any idea what the hell is going on with me?
