In addition to disruptions observed by the subject, including frequent episodes of waking up with a sensation of breathlessness, several other symptoms are an indication of a sleep apnea problem:
- Snoring: snoring as a result of the Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSAS) is often intense, interrupted by apneas (silences) with an ʺexplosiveʺ repeat with accompanying leg movements;
- Drowsiness problems during the day;
- Fatigue (asthenia);
- Related morning headaches;
- Night sweats (in 66% of cases);
- Memory trouble;
- Decrease in sexual drive.
Taken individually, each symptom does not necessarily indicate that you suffer from sleep apnea, but the combination of these factors is a clear signal that it may be time to see your physician to analyze the possibility you may have sleep apnea.
Do you have any of these symptoms?
