Signs You May Suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common condition in which the throat temporarily closes during sleep, preventing oxygen from reaching the lungs.

OSA is a serious problem since it deprives the brain of oxygen and disrupts the sleep cycle.

Do you suffer from sleep apnea? Here are some signs that you or your sleeping partner may notice…


This sound occurs when air is forced between the collapsed tissues of a blocked breathing passage. It’s not normal or a sign of good sleep.

Gasping or Choking

Has your partner or roommate ever told you that you make choking or gasping sounds in your sleep? You may not know this is happening, but it’s your body’s way of trying to get more air.

Sore Throat

Those gasping sounds you make can leave you with a raw throat and pounding headache in the morning.

Daytime Drowsiness

If you’re always inexplicably sleepy during the day, it could indicate that something like OSA is keeping you from getting a good night’s rest.


Your moods is dependent on your getting plenty of sleep. If OSA is keeping you up at night, then you may be prone to moodiness or depression.

Alcohol Consumption

Drinking alcohol is not a direct cause of OSA but it can contribute to sleeping problems. There’s a chance that you could have OSA if you show some symptoms and have a routine of having an evening drink or two before bed.

Difficulty Concentrating

Not sure why you can’t focus on anything, these days? Your concentration may be affected by a lack of sufficient sleep and oxygen, which are necessary for optimal brain function.
