Are you suffering from sleep apnea? Commonly known as (OSA) Obstructive Sleep Apnea, it’s a sleep disorder with potentially serious consequences. In the US, between 18 and 30 million adults suffer from this lifelong medical condition. This number is potentially greater because many suffering from sleep apnea is undiagnosed. Sleep apnea is a chronic medical condition that affects many areas of your life by depriving you of a good night sleep. We all know that lack of sleep has been associated with things like hypertension, diabetes, heart disease as well as driving and work-related accidents.

If you are having trouble sleeping, snoring or waking up in the middle of the night with shortness of breath, it is possible that you are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. The symptoms of obstructive and central sleep apneas are sometimes difficult to identify because they tend to overlap, sometimes making a specific type of sleep apnea more difficult to diagnose. The most common symptoms of obstructive sleep apneas include:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia)
- Loud snoring, which is usually more prominent in obstructive sleep apnea
- Episodes of breathing cessation during sleep witnessed by another person
- Abrupt awakenings accompanied by shortness of breath, which more likely indicates central sleep apnea
- Awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat
- Morning headache
- Difficulty staying asleep (insomnia)
- Attention problems
