Home / Do You Have Sleep Apnea?

 

One of the key symptoms of OSA is snoring —especially if that snoring is irregular, and punctuated by pauses in breath and gasps for air. But snoring isn’t the only hint that a person may be suffering from OSA. Among the common symptoms are:

  • Excessive daytime sleepiness or fatigue
  • Dry mouth or sore throat upon awakening
  • Morning headaches
  • Difficulty concentrating and forgetfulness
  • Irritability and depression
  • Night sweats
  • Restlessness during sleep
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Heartburn
  • Loud and irregular snoring
  • Sudden awakenings with a sensation of gasping or choking
  • Difficulty getting up in the mornings

Sleepy Apnea
There are simple tests you can use to determine if you are sleep deprived, but the only true way to determine the extent and nature of an OSA condition is with an overnight sleep study. You can read all about that on Diagnosis section.
