Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
The symptoms of sleep apnea can be broken down into those that occur at night during rest and those you can physical feel the next day.
During the night, sleep apnea’s symptoms include:
- Loud snoring
- Making choking or gasping sounds while asleep
- Restless sleep
- Waking up frequently throughout the night
Frequently, it takes the presence of a bed partner suffering through nights of snoring, thrashing, and gasping for most apnea patients to become aware of their disruptive sleep patterns.
However, sleep apnea also exhibits bodily symptoms that can be recognized as being caused by a lack of quality sleep.
Daytime sleep apnea symptoms include:
- Waking with a dry or sore throat
- Frequent morning headaches
- Daytime drowsiness
- Feeling tired regardless of the amount of sleep you received the night before
- Sleepiness while driving
- Mood swings
- Trouble concentrating
- Decreased sex drive
