Sleep Apnea Symptoms

Snoring and choking aren’t the only symptoms of sleep apnea. Many of the most impactful symptoms are felt while a person is awake during the normal course of the day.

Those who suffer from sleep apnea do not get the amount of deep sleep needed every night to be well rested, refreshed and energized the following day. The lack of deep breathing due to a struggle for adequate breaths leaves them tired and restless. Consequently, those suffering from sleep apnea are often tired, drowsy, and lack energy during the day. A persons’ quality of life can greatly be affected by theses conditions.

Other Symptoms May Include:

  • Depression
  • Difficulty with Memory
  • Morning migraine headaches
  • Changes in mood and personality
  • Lack of concentration in school or at work
  • Restlessness
  • Frequent waking to use the restroom during sleep
  • Insomnia
  • Hyperactive behavior, especially in children
  • Leg swelling
