What are the symptoms related to sleep apnea?

Many symptoms can be experienced by a person with sleep apnea. The most common are:

  • Sore throat and dry mouth upon awakening
  • Snoring
  • Choking sensation at night
  • Daytime fatigue and lack of energy
  • Fatigue when driving
  • Headaches in the morning
  • Poor sleep
  • Memory disorders and mood changes
  • Libido decline
  • Frequent waking during night and insomnia

However, it is common that a patient with sleep apnea does not suspect it by himself. It is often the life partner who informs the patient that he snores and stops breathing momentarily during sleep.
The best indicator for the patient is definitely non-restorative sleep and daytime sleepiness. This is why screening for sleep apnea is frequently done using a questionnaire called the Epworth sleepiness scale.
If you have reason to believe that you suffer from sleep apnea, it is important to consult a sleep professional for a complete sleep evaluation. A sleep study at home or in the laboratory is the only way to diagnose apnea and to evaluate its severity.
