Sleep apnea can be incredibly frustrating. It disrupts your normal sleeping habits, and can leave you feeling as though you didn’t sleep well enough at all during the night.

There’s an estimated 20 million adults in the U.S. who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, but it’s thought that millions more suffer from sleep apnea without knowing it.

So how do you know when you should seek sleep apnea treatment? Let’s take a look at some warning signs that should prompt you to seek treatment.

Snoring

While it’s not always an iron-clad symptom, if your spouse tells you that you snore at night, there’s a chance you’re suffering from sleep apnea.

Specifically, if your snoring is very loud and chronic, that’s almost a sure sign that you have sleep apnea.

Breaks in breathing

This is a surefire sign that some form of sleep apnea is affecting your nightly rest. At times during sleep, your airway can become blocked, which deprives your brain of oxygen. Then, your brain jerks you awake – but not all the way. This prevents the deep, restful sleep you need in order to achieve the best benefits from sleep.
