If you have sleep apnoea, there are times during the night when you stop breathing. However, you may not be aware that you have sleep apnoea. It may be your partner or another family member that notices the signs first.
Having sleep apnoea can make you feel very drowsy during the day. You may find it hard to concentrate or remember things, feel tired when you wake up, and feel moody.

Snoring (but not everyone who snores has sleep apnoea)
Difficulty concentrating during the day
Feeling very sleepy during the day
Difficulty staying awake
Waking up tired and not refreshed
