Answering the questions below will help you to understand whether sleep apnea is disturbing your sleep and disrupting your life.
The questions in the very important questions list are especially important; a "yes" answer strongly suggests that sleep apnea is the problem. To answer some questions, you will need the help of your roommate, bedmate, or a family member, or you may use a tape recorder or video recorder to identify snoring and pauses in breathing.
A "yes" answer to any of these questions may be a clue that an underlying sleep disorder exists. This may be sleep apnea, another sleep disorder, or even a problem not related to sleep. Each of the questions points to a symptom. Symptoms are the clues, sometimes subtle and perceived only by the patient (such as memory loss), and sometimes overt and observable by friend or family (such as snoring), which indicate that the mind or body is diseased. Your doctor, trained to see symptoms as the manifestation of disease, can help you interpret and understand the basis of your condition.
