Understanding your risk for sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is a debilitating and life-shortening ailment that affects millions of people across the globe, many of whom do not know they have this potentially dangerous condition. Understanding sleep apnea and its symptoms and risk factors is imperative for men and women who feel they have or may someday have sleep apnea.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Individuals who may be experiencing sleep apnea may have the following symptoms, according to The Mayo Clinic:

  • excessive daytime sleepiness
  • loud snoring
  • awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat
  • headaches in the morning
  • problems paying attention
  • difficulty staying asleep

Others may notice a spouse or family member has sleep apnea by recognizing abrupt awakenings from shortness of breath or intermittent pauses in his or her breathing during sleep. Also, it is important to note that snoring may not be a sign of sleep apnea, but very often loud snoring punctuated by periods of silence is a pretty good indicator of apnea.
