If you snore, it could mean you have a serious medical condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnea. People who suffer from this condition often feel tired all the time, because they stop breathing hundreds of times a night and their body is waking them up each time.

Common symptoms of sleep apnea:

  • Loud or disruptive snoring
  • Excessive daytime fatigue
  • Gasping or choking while you sleep
  • Headaches in the morning
  • Frequent nighttime urination
  • Depression
  • Irritability

If left untreated, sleep apnea can increase your risk for:

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart attacks
  • Strokes
  • Diabetes
  • Irregular heart rhythms
  • Driving accidents
  • Work-related accidents

Snoring may not mean anything, but it could be a warning sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnea, so it’s important to get checked out.
