Common Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Hello fellow insomniacs,

I wanted to post a quick follow up to my previous comment that I disqualified sleep apnea as the cause of my particular case of insomnia. In many instances, symptoms of sleep apnea can mirror those of typical generic insomnia. So what are the most prevalent symptoms of sleep apnea? They include:

– Excessive daytime fatigue
– Waking up tired
– Sudden heartburn in the middle of the night
– Swelling of the legs
– Frequently getting up to urinate during the course of the night
– Waking up in the middle of the night gasping for breath

Any of you experiencing these phenomenon may be displaying symptoms of sleep apnea. If so, it is imperative that you get a sleep apnea test in order to know for sure whether or not you are suffering from this condition. The good news is that if sleep apnea is the culprit behind your insomnia, then relatively easy cures are possible. However, failure to treat sleep apnea can lead to a long list of adverse health conditions — so if you are experiencing the above symptoms of sleep apnea, then you should seek help from a physician and a sleep apnea test. This sleep apnea test can be a bit inconvenient, however, it is absolutely painless. Unfortunately, I was unable to solve my insomnia problems with a sleep apnea diagnosis, but maybe this can prove to be the key to curing your trouble sleeping.

Back Soon,
