Tonsilitis?/Stuffed up nose = sleep apnea


I am a 25 year old white male of British descent (fair skinned, light freckles, blue eyes).

I have been having trouble sleeping at night, partly due to troublesome dreams, partly due to restricted airways.

My tonsils are enlarged and restrict my breathing at night. I don't think it is tonsilitis because they are still normal colored after a long time, no sores or tenderness. Actually my doctor gave me Calc Carb (200c in two doses, then 12x twice a day for weeks), and one of them is pretty much back to normal. The one on the right is still large, maybe a little smaller now, but not getting any better after months. I don't know if they were always that large or if they got that big because of the mononucleosis I had when I was about 20-21 years old in college.

I think the Calc Carb helped with my sinuses as well because I haven't had any sinus infections or clogging of my Eustachian tube like I would in the winter of every other year. I still have to blow my nose every day (I use a neti pot too) but its not runny or completely stopped up. It's just like there's a permanent film of mucus in my nose. Boogers can be a problem too. I also have to frequently hauck from the throat (probably around the tonsils or vocal cord area). This usually happens after brushing my teeth or while running. The mucus from that is usually translucent or really light colored, not yellow or brown.

Please answer the following questions in a descriptive manner after careful analysis and recollection of previous experiences and happenings.

1. Describe your main suffering?

Fatigue, feeling 'out of it', sleep not refreshing, not feeling alert or intellectually quick. I have to constantly double check my work to make sure I didn't space out while doing it.

2. What other physical sufferings do you have in your body?

Slow bowel movements, possibly hemorrhoids, mild acne (probably from drooling in my sleep at night), contracted testicles (pulled up more than usual), enlarged right tonsil, mucus in the sinuses

3. What mental sufferings / feelings do you have associated with your physical sufferings?

Feel not in control because I am tired and out of it. Can't take control of situations. Low confidence.

4. What exactly do you feel when you are at your worst?

Like I'm not really in control, that I'm watching a movie because everything almost seems surreal. Don't want to interact socially.

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?

It probably started around middle school. I remember starting to feel tired around that time and become socially withdrawn. I don't think I noticed it as much in college because I was able to sleep in or just thought I was hungover, etc.

6. Which time of the day you are worst?

In the morning and in the late afternoon after work.

7. What are the things which aggravate your suffering and which are those which ameliorate the same?

I don't the cold. Sunshine puts me in a good mood.

8. Do your think your sufferings have relation to any external stimuli (like, change of place) or any internal biological changes in the body, like, menses (in females)?

I like hot weather.

weeping, talking to one self etc?

I like taking apart pens and remote controls, pulling stickers off of bottles, etc.

- How do you feel about your friends, family, your children and especially your husband / wife?

Everyone in my family is crazy except my brother. My parents are hoarders (like the TV Show 'Hoarders'). I don't have a girlfriend. I love my friends.

11. What are your fears and do you dream of any situation repeatedly?

I fear failure and being rejected, being made fun of. I frequently dream of graduation nearing and remembering that there are classes I haven't even attended or done any work for to graduate on time. Losing my cellphone or an important possession is common as well. Being in public without an important piece of clothing such as my pants, etc.

I like my back or roll to the side/stomach on top of the pillow I hold at night.

No, I live at home and have been extremely sexually frustrated. Same applies to before college. College I had moderate success, but still not satisfied.

20. How do you think you are different from others, if at all?

I took antimonium crudum for warts on my hands and it cured them. Took Carb Calc for the sinus and tonsil problem and it improved greatly but didn't finish the job.
