Snoring is the most common symptom of sleep apnea. But, while snoring may be annoying to everyone in the house, it is far from the most worrisome symptom of this common disorder. Symptoms of sleep apnea that may be brought to your attention by a spouse or roommate.
Symptoms of sleep apnea
- Periods of breath cessation lasting longer than five seconds during sleep
- Choking and gasping noises made during sleep
- Restlessness and frequent movement
- Night sweats
These issues may remain unnoticed unless brought to your attention by someone with whom you live. If one or more of these symptoms has been brought to your attention, it is a good idea to call our Mesa sleep apnea dentists at (480) 834-6991 to schedule an evaluation right away.
Daytime Sleep Apnea Symptoms
Many of the symptoms of sleep apnea are noticeable during the day. These include :
- Waking with a dry mouth or sore throat
- Frequent morning headaches
- Excessive daytime fatigue
- Unusual mood swings
- Memory or concentration problems
All of us may, on occasion, experience one or more of these symptoms entirely unrelated to sleep apnea. However, when they become chronic or occur in combination, your best bet is to discuss the issue with one of our dentists to learn if sleep apnea treatment would be useful in resolving the problem.
