I’ve read that sleep apnea may be under diagnosed because it tends to get attributed to obesity. Due to that bias people just assume someone at a healthy size and weight won’t have it

No doubt it is under diagnosed. It has long been viewed as a thing obese people and elderly people have, so single people who don't have someone in bed with them telling them "hey you snore but you also like stopped breathing for a bit" are likely to attribute their fatigue and brain fog to anything but sleep apnea.
