Sleep Apnea Signs, Symptoms and Causes
While you are asleep, gasping or snoring happens, so you won’t know that you are having problems breathing or be able to judge just how severe the problem is. This is where a family member or bed partner comes into play—they will typically notice these problems long before you do. It is important to remember, though, that not everyone who snores has sleep apnea just like not everyone with sleep apnea snores.
