When I was having my Testosterone tested (108 ng/dL by the way) my blood test reveled a high red blood cell count, 5.90. Just a little high since normal is 4.10 to 5.65. Could this be caused by untreated sleep apnea? I didn't notice the high RBC count so I didn't ask my doctor about it. And next visit I plan to mention my sleep apnea problem. It only happens when I sleep on my back, so I try to sleep on my side, but I have severe pain, so I toss all night long. When I am on my back I will awaken, gasping for air, fall asleep and within minutes it happens again. My wife hears me gasping a lot during the night, even when I don't notice.
Thank you in advance for your advice.
