The Symptoms that Tell You’re a Victim of Sleep Apnea

Posted .

Sleep apnea can affect your life in many ways, which can be quite inconvenient and troublesome. Our dentist, Dr. Randy Cockrell, encourages you to treat your sleep apnea as soon as possible, but you can only treat it if you know you’re for sure a victim. So, he would like to help you have an idea of your situation. The symptoms of sleep apnea are:

-Snoring loudly

-Feeling tired after a full night’s sleep

-Episodes of breathing interruptions (This is typically identified by a partner in bed)

-Waking up abruptly throughout the night by shortness of breath

-Having a dry mouth or sore throat in the morning when you wake up


-Having a headache in the morning

-Being extremely tired throughout the day

-Problems paying attention


It’s important to see a doctor regarding your sleep apnea if your snoring is loud enough to interrupt other people’s sleep, you have shortness of breath when waking up throughout the night, you have pauses in your breathing when you sleep, and you are very tired during the day.
