Do you have sleep apnea? Sometimes, the signs are plainly obvious. Other times, though, the signs may be subtler – and you may be passing them off as benign nuisances that happen to everyone. And, who knows, you may have some serious symptoms and are in denial about the fact that you may have a deadly sleep disorder. When it comes down to it, it is important to be aware of some of the more common symptoms. It is also important to know how damaging sleep apnea is to your health, so that you can kick into action and get help. Here are some ways to know if you have sleep apnea.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

One of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea is excessive snoring. Snoring is almost like an alarm system that your body gives off – telling you that there is some kind of disordered breathing going on. If your snoring is compounded by these other symptoms, it may be time to get tested for sleep apnea:

  • Excessive snoring
  • Obesity
  • Daytime Fatigue
  • Nighttime awakenings
  • Morning headaches
  • Feeling irritable
  • Frequent nighttime urination

 

Effects of Sleep Apnea

Yes, the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea can be quite severe. Over time, these symptoms can become even more severe and even deadly. Other symptoms, like daytime fatigue, can result in cognitive dysfunction, which can increase the risk for a vehicular collision. Here are some of the ravaging effects the sleep apnea can have on your health:

  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke
  • Depression
  • Weight gain
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Vehicular collisions
  • Death

 

In the end, if you have any of the aforementioned symptoms of sleep apnea, it is definitely time to get help. Your first step on the road to recovery is to get tested for the disorder. These days, getting tested is easier than ever. With a home sleep test, you can test yourself for the sleep apnea in the comfort of your own home – in your own bed. Image that!
