Daytime Sleep Apnea Symptoms

If you live alone or have not been told that you snore or choke in your sleep, you will want to be aware of daytime symptoms of sleep apnea. Commonly, people who suffer from sleep apnea will wake with a headache, sore throat, or dry mouth. These things are all a good indication that proper breathing is not taking place while you sleep.

Other daytime symptoms of sleep apnea may include:

  • Excessive daytime fatigue
  • Memory loss
  • Concentration problems
  • Mood swings
  • Depression or anxiety

If you are suffering from any of these things it is important that you discuss your symptoms with a sleep specialist as soon as possible.
