How do I Know If I Have Sleep Apnea?
Snoring is one of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea, although not everyone who snores has sleep apnea. The snoring is typically loud enough to be heard through a closed door, or causes a bed partner to elbow the snorer.

Daytime drowsiness, including falling asleep unintentionally when working, reading, watching TV, or behind the wheel when driving is another common sign of sleep apnea.

Observed Apnea
A bed partner may tell you that you stop breathing at night, with the pause that may or may not be followed by a choking or gasping breath. [2]

  • Memory or concentration problems
