Do I Have Sleep Apnea?
Do you feel exhausted at work? While driving? Can’t get through the day without falling asleep?
How do you know if you have sleep problems? There are three major warning signs for sleep apnea, as well as secondary side effects. Some of the most glaring sleep apnea symptoms include:
- Loud and chronic snoring
- Fatigue during the day
- Nighttime awakenings accompanied by choking or gasping
Daytime fatigue makes your daily life more difficult. Perhaps you have a hard time focusing, learning, or remembering.You may have noticed your snoring and awakenings, but even more likely, a bed partner has mentioned them.
If these signs of sleep problems have been occurring to you, it’s a good idea to see a sleep specialist. Dr. Buchheit can diagnose you with an at home sleep study and help you protect your health with effective treatments.
