This does not sound like a medical issue from what you have posted.

Of course, if you are really concerned, then the best way to evaluate your sleep pattern is to have a sleep study done in a sleep lab.

With these data, a good physical exam and possibly some lab work, the doctors should quickly be able to tell what, if anything, is going on.

Does this make sense to you?

I have realized that I have an arterior pelvic tilt what can I do to mend this?

Usually that requires no treatment.

You could have a complete exam by an OB/GYN or orthopedic surgeon and see what they think
