What Are the Other Symptoms of Sleep Apnea?
Aside from drowsiness when you wake up and throughout the day, there are several other symptoms that are associated with sleep apnea. You might experience any or all of the following:
- You or your partner notices pauses in your breathing while you’re sleeping
- Loud snoring – sometimes you wake yourself up
- Frequent headaches and/or sore throat, particularly in the morning
- Mood changes, including irritability and depression
- Difficulty focusing on even minor tasks
There are also a number of potentially concerning health risks associated with sleep apnea. These include an increased risk of stroke, high blood pressure, obesity, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and atrial fibrillation. That’s why it’s essential to treat this common condition.
