Sleep apnea causes several disturbances in breathing while you sleep. Adults suffering from sleep apnea may experience pause in breathe or sometimes, their breathing could become very shallow. For many adults, frequent snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea. Also, for others, the only obvious symptoms of sleep apnea are extreme fatigue or dizziness during the day.
Sleep disordered breathing conditions can be suspected from the above mentioned symptoms and a clinical examination may confirm the condition. Your doctor may recommend treatments as required. Certain oral devices can help treat OSAS.
