5 Simple Questions to Help Recognize Sleep Apnea

By Sarah Murphy

Sleep Apnea is a disorder that causes you to stop breathing repeatedly in your sleep. If left untreated it can pose serious health risks on your mind and body. That's why we have composed a short list of questions to help indicate if you might have sleep apnea. Remember, don't use the answers to these questions as a diagnosis, but as a tool to help you decide if you should visit your doctor to be further examined. 

 

1.  Do you snore?
