Sleep Apnea Symptoms and Causes

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which the regular sleep patterns are interrupted due to people's breathing stopping and restarting repeatedly throughout the night. Sleep apnea can cause life threatening issues, and and any symptoms that you are aware of need to be evaluated by a professional sleep apnea expert.

Symptoms of sleep apnea include:

  • Choking or coughing during sleep
  • Never feeling rested, even after adequate hours of sleep
