Your answers to this quiz will help you decide whether you may suffer from sleep apnea:

  1. Are you a loud and/or regular snorer?
     Yes  No
  2. Have you ever been observed to gasp or stop breathing during sleep?
     Yes  No
  3. Do you feel tired or groggy upon awakening, or do you awaken with a headache?
     Yes  No
  4. Are you often tired or fatigued during the wake time hours?
     Yes  No
  5. Do you fall asleep sitting, reading, watching TV or driving?
     Yes  No
  6. Do you often have problems with memory or concentration?
     Yes  No

If you have one or more of these symptoms you are at higher risk for having obstructive sleep apnea. If you are also overweight, have a large neck, and/or have high blood pressure the risk increases even further.

If you or someone close to you answers "yes" to any of the above questions, you should discuss your symptoms with your physician or a sleep specialist.
