My symptoms started during 1988 and was not diagnosed until 1998. Some of the issues were spitting up blood in the AM morning; high blood pressure; swollen throat; and definitely sleepiness, tiredness, and shortness of breath . Since then I've had my tonsils, uvula, and soft palate removed to fixed my diagnose in 1998. As of 2005, I was given my first lab sleep study because the treatment of 1998 failed, and has sense been using a CPAP. Unfortunately, in 2011 a triple by pass was performed on me who never has smoked and had consider myself to be health.
