Hello... I am a pulmonologist in Nagpur... Few questions- whether she snores? Is she overweight? If yes... she needs a sleep study probably as symptom described by you gotta the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea... Feel free to discuss!

Hi, Welcome to Practo, As you explained your symptoms this looks like obstructive sleep apnoea. You need to evaluate your mom by Pulmonologist and decide for sleep study to be done.
