If I snore does that mean I have sleep apnea?
No, not necessarily. Not everyone who snores suffers from sleep apnea. However, frequent and/or loud snoring may be a sign of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a common and potentially serious disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts as you sleep. The biggest indicator of sleep apnea is how you feel during the day. Normal snoring shouldn’t interfere with the quality of your sleep as much as sleep apnea does. For example, you’re less likely to experience extreme fatigue and sleepiness during the day from snoring during sleep. These symptoms are an indicator for sleep apnea.
