Tingling, wheezing, memory loss, snoring, tired

I am a relatively healthy 43 year old male.  I have a family history of heart disease.  I have been developed a wheezing within the last several months, whcih seems to get worse at bedtime (laying down).  I have noticed some memory loss within the same time period (short and long term).  I have also started snoring (quite loudly) something that I never used to do.  I am also continually tired lately..  Within the past few days, I have developed a tingling sensation in my left foot/toes.  I know feel it ocassionally in my left hand/fingers.  I am concerned that I there might be an issue with my heart.  I do have mitrol valve prolapse, but have never experienced all of these symptoms before.

Any ideas what might be casuing all these symptoms?  Is this something that I should take immediate action on?  My doctor is a joke and it takes weeks before I can get him to refer me to a specialist.  (Isn't managed care wonderful).

I am a 59 year old T2 diabetic male with stent, sleep apnea, and pacemaker/defibrillator. Get a another doctor who can schedule tests for your heart and a trip to a sleep study lab. Been through all that. I had a heart attack, without the classic symptoms, four years ago. A 90% blockage necessitated a stent. I also developed congestive heart failure that led to the heart device implant. I'm just recovering from the surgery but can feel some progress. I also use a cpap(continuous positive air pressure) machine when I sleep. I don't toss or snore anymore and I feel more refreshed because my sleep stages are more efficient and less fragmented. It takes time getting used to sleeping with a mask over the nose but you quickly get over any discomfort.

It sounds like some of your symptoms may be sleep apnea.  I had severe memory loss, snoring, constant tiredness, and headaches before I was sent for the sleep test.  Within 3 days I felt normal again after getting CPAP.  And my sleep apnea was mild to moderate.  Sleep apnea has also been associated with heart problems in various research studies.  So, get a reliable doctor who will make the necessary referrals.
