Do I have sleep apnea?

How can you tell if you have sleep apnea? The only real way is to have a sleep study, a test that records what happens while you sleep. But there are some common signs of sleep apnea:

  • Loud snoring
  • Waking up choking and gasping
  • daytime drowsiness
  • morning headaches
  • depression, anxiety, mood changes
  • diabetes
  • heart disease and stroke
  • obesity

The scoring tool below is used to help when screening patients for OSA. It can be used as a self-tool to assess your own condition.

*It is important to remember that in order to successfully diagnose someone with Obstructed Sleep Apnea, a complete evaluation done by a licensed professional is necessary.
