The most common sign of sleep apnea is fatigue throughout the day. Interruptions in sleeping patterns impair our ability to achieve gainful sleep, which in turn causes conditions associated with sleep disturbances. Examples of such conditions are chronic headaches, high blood pressure, and heart arrhythmias.
Snoring is also a common sign of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is characterized by the compression of tissues in the back of the throat during sleep. Snoring occurs when these tissues vibrate, resulting from air being forced through the obstructed airway. Snoring can be disruptive to your own sleep patterns as well as others around you. There is, however, a cure for snoring resulting from sleep apnea.
