Your body knows what it needs after a concussion .... SLEEP.

Give in and sleep.

It seems extremely unlikely that a whiplash injury could cause sleep apnea.  If you do turn out to have sleep apnea, it is more likely that you had it prior to the car accident and just weren't aware of it.  Best wishes.
