Signs of Sleep Disorders

Do you have the following signs & symptoms?

  • Do you snore?
  • Are you always tired?
  • Has your partner noticed that you gasp or stop breathing during sleep?
  • Do you wake up in a sweat during the night?
  • Do you wake up with morning headaches?
  • Do you often wake up feeling un-refreshed?
  • Have your energy and motivation levels decreased?
  • Do you find it difficult to concentrate?
  • Do you have daytime sleepiness, including falling asleep at inappropriate times such as during driving or work? 

If you answer “yes” to any of the following, you may be at greater risk for


sleep apnea.

  • Are you overweight?
  • Does anyone else in your family have a history of snoring or sleep apnea?
  • Do you have high blood pressure?
  • Have you suffered a stroke or heart attack
  • Do you have heart disease?
  • Do you have large tonsils or adenoids?
