Am i having sleep apnea?

Dear doc. I am female, 23 years old.. I've been experiencing sleeping difficulties for thwo years on and off but it is getting worse now for the past three weeks, where i only able to sleep at 5.00 am everyday. In the evening for the next day, i will sleep again for 3 to 4 hours because i feel tired. However, what bother me the most is., lately for the past three days i'm having short breath at night. At one time while sleeping, i stop breathing for several seconds (not remember exactly how long) feels like an obstruction in my airways however i'm not experiencing any coughing or snoring. F.Y.I i'm also having difficulties in concentration and forgetfulness. What actually caused all of these symptoms? Are they related? What should i do? Hopefully, anyone can help me. I really need opinion..Thank u

It sounds like you're having a number of different problems simultaneously: sleep onset insomnia, delayed sleep phase syndrome, and a possible sleep-breathing problem. There are a number of conservative options to begin with, but based on the severity of your condition, I would first see your medical doctor to make sure it's not a treatable medical condition. Afterwards, a consultation with a sleep doctor is a consideration. Good luck.
