How to self diagnose sleep apnea?

Self-diagnosis of sleep apnea is not recommended.

Sleep apnea is a complex disorder that can be difficult to diagnose without a sleep study. A sleep study is a test that records your breathing, heart rate, and other bodily functions during sleep. The sleep study will show whether you have sleep apnea and how severe it is.

There are a few things you can do at home to see if you might have sleep apnea, but these are not a substitute for a sleep study. These include:

  • Ask your bed partner if you snore loudly or if you stop breathing during your sleep.
  • Check to see if you wake up with a dry mouth or a sore throat.
  • Pay attention to how you feel during the day. If you are tired, irritable, or have trouble concentrating, you may have sleep apnea.

If you think you might have sleep apnea, it is important to see a doctor. Early diagnosis and treatment can help to improve your sleep quality and reduce your risk of serious health problems.
