for about 2 years i have progressively got less sleep and am constantly waking up with my hands curled up in cramps or numb. i get no satisfaction from sleep anymore and constantly feel tired and even fall asleep at times during the day. sometimes i feel breathless and have to have gulps of air. my wife says i dont stop breathing during sleep, so i dont think i have sleep apnoea.

i have suffered from major depression for about 2 years and wonder if i actually have depression caused by whatever is causing these other symptoms.

my regular doctor is on holiday and i will be seeing her when she returns about this problem. any advice or help here would be appreciated.
