Sleep Apnea Symptoms and Risk Factors

The first step to treating sleep apnea is determining whether or not you are affected by the sleep disorder. Many people snore, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they suffer from sleep apnea. If your snoring is accompanied by choking or gasping sounds, you may have sleep apnea.

Common Sleep Apnea Symptoms Include:

  • Loud/Frequent Snoring
  • Breathing Pauses
  • Choking Sounds
  • Daytime Fatigue
  • Daytime Sleepiness
  • Depression
  • Difficulty Concentrating
  • Dry Mouth/Sore Throat
  • Frequent Nighttime Urination
  • Gasping for Breath
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Memory/Learning Problems
  • Moodiness or Irritability
  • Low Energy

Are You at Risk for Sleep Apnea?

Many people believe that older, overweight men are affected by sleep apnea, but this is a misconception. Anyone – regardless of age, gender or body type – can suffer from sleep apnea. However, some risk factors include:

  • Excess Weight
  • Large Neck/Tongue
  • Old Age
  • Being Male
  • Smoking
  • Hypertension
  • Genetics
  • Nasal Congestion
