Numbness on Awaking

I have heart disease and have 4 stents.... not a good candidate for surgery because of antithrombin III deficiency.  To complicate things more I have a back injury directly behind my heart inbetween the shoulder blades. I have mentioned this problem to my doctor but he just scratches his head. Its hard to get them to do much with my heart disease because surgery has been ruled out. I guess thats about all they know how to do. Anyhow I have also been diagnosed with sleep apnea and have a new machine for that... I wake up choking from it... it does not let me exhale properly. They gave me a new one .... a bipap... same problem.  I wake up with numb hands alot sometimes up my arms too. Pressure is normal and I am on Crestor at the maximum dose, toprol xl, coumadin, plavix, hyzaar, aciphex, hay fever meds.  Also, for the last 6 months my Mean corpusle size has been high.  Other tests ok... so my doctor is not real concerned.  Anyhow, I am alittle concerned.  Do you folks have any ideas at Med whatever this is?
