The biggest difference between the two is the way you feel the ensuing morning. Individuals who suffer from sleep apnea will feel exhausted the subsequent day. When you wake up in the morning, if you just snore, you’ll feel refreshed and ready for the day. If you suffer from sleep apnea, your body wakes up several times throughout the night in order to get air. This will leave you feeling tired and unrested the next day. It is recommended you keep a sleep diary gathering more data on how you are feeling.
Sleep apnea causes loud, regular snoring while snoring can be quiet and may not occur every evening. Sleep apnea occurs because your breathing is cut off for several seconds, and your body has to wake up in order to alert you to breath.
If you choke during the night, it may be a sign of sleep apnea. The choking and gasping are your body’s way of attempting to catch your breath. If you think, you have sleep apnea, contact Dr. Judith Strtuz & her team today for support.
