Millions of people suffer from sleep apnea. The symptoms of this disorder make it difficult to get a good night's rest. It is not only difficult for them to sleep and stay asleep but other people are also affected by people suffering from sleep apnea. They store and gasp loud enough to wake others.

Symptoms of sleep apnea

There are several types of sleep apnea that may affect people.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) “ the airway at the back of your throat is blocked during OSA. When the tongue collapses against your soft palate and the soft palate collapses against your throat, breathing lapses may happen.

Central sleep apnea (CSA) “ this is a condition where that happens when there is a problem with the system in your brain controlling respiration muscles. It can result in slow, shallow breathing.

Complex sleep apnea – a compilation of OSA and CSA.

All these three types of sleep apnea share some of the same symptoms-

  • Labored breathing and possibly even the stopping of respiration for up to one minute
  • Irritability due to lack of sleep
  • Headaches upon awakening
  • Difficulty in thinking clearly during the day
  • Forgetfulness and mood changes

The symptoms of sleep apnea often result from poor sleep quality and because your brain received a lower amount of oxygen during sleep due to interrupted respiration.
