Determine how likely your snoring may be related to your overall health.
It is common for sleep apnea to go undiagnosed by physicians. Sleep apnea is difficult to detect during a routine office visit. Take a moment to answer the following questions
Snore – Do you snore?
Tired – Do you feel tired, fatigued or sleepy during the daytime?
Observed – Has your bed partner observed you stop breathing during your sleep?
Pressure – Do you have or are you being treated for high blood pressure?
Did you answer yes to any questions? Discuss the possibility of sleep apnea with your physician and let him/her know your concerns.
