The most common sign and symptom of sleep apnea is snoring and witnessed apneas at night.

So if you have a bed partner that while you're sleeping notices that you stop breathing or you choke at night, that's probably the biggest indication. If you think some of these sleep apnea symptoms fit your issues, go to your family doctor and they can do a simple home sleep apnea test.

Or they can send you to a local sleep specialist that can investigate it further. They can test you overnight to determine if you've got this condition.

If you have questions about sleep apnea and associated medical conditions, contact a local sleep specialist.
