Hello and thank you for your question!
You are correct that sleep problems can cause significant health issues.
I would highly recommend getting into your primary care doctor and ask for a sleep study! That will be the best test to see if you have sleep apnea and if so, how bad it is.
Correction of Life Long Problems including sleep apnea
I lecture on this topic where I discuss common development aspects of sleep apnea and TMJ disorders.
During development these problems lead to ADD, ADHD, Behavioral disorders, anxiety disorders, hormonal imbalances and other problems including chronic pain.
Without evaluating you personally it is hard to make any recomendations but you might be an excellent candidate for the DNA Appliance that may be able to grow you out of your sleep apnea and help with breathing and posture.
There is a possibility you would respond well to a Sphenopalatine Ganglion Block which is like a reset button for your autonomic nervous system.
