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.
