Why should I get tested for sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea seriously disrupts the normal sleep cycle, which is crucial to rejuvenating the body and the brain. Repeated apneas or disruptions deprive you of the most critical kind of sleep for recharging your batteries: deep and REM sleep. This results in feeling tired and groggy during the day. Sleep apnea can also increase your risk for developing other chronic and life-threatening conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes.

How do I know if I have sleep apnea?

The most common signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea includes:

  • Loud snoring
  • Episodes in which you stop breathing during sleep
  • Gasping for air during sleep
  • Awakening with a dry mouth
  • Morning headache
  • Difficulty staying asleep (insomnia)
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia)
  • Difficulty paying attention while awake
  • Irritability
