• Sleep Apnea Symptoms


There are three types of Sleep Apnea.

CENTRAL - Brain doesn't send signals to the muscles to take next breath.

OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA- Here, the brain sends signals, but there is some obstruction in the airway passage so the muscles fail to follow the signal.

MIXED SLEEP APNEA- This is when there is a mixed impairment.

Most common symptoms of sleep apnea are-
  • Loud, habitual, disturbing snoring
  • Sudden gasping and choking during sleep leading to occasional sleeplessness
  • Urination during sleep along with other symptoms of sleep apnea
  • Excessive tiredness, heaviness, morning headache and confusion on waking up in morning
  • Dry mouth and sore throat on waking up in the morning
  • Restlessness while sleeping
  • Sexual dysfunctions like impotence and reduced sex drive
  • Irritation, depression and memory problems
