Sleep disorder symptoms
Here are some symptoms that are common of sleep disorders:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Continual loud snoring
- Consistently waking up with a headache or being as tired as when you went to bed
- Falling asleep at inappropriate times (e.g. while driving a car or watching a movie)
- Feeling a choking sensation while sleeping or when aroused from sleep
- Unusual behavior during sleep, such as acting out dreams, bedwetting, or sleepwalking
If you experience persistent signs and symptoms of a sleep disorder, do not ignore them. Left untreated, sleep disorders can lead to other serious health problems.
