Many but not all patients with OSA may suffer from any of the following symptoms:
- Nocturnal choking and gasping for air
- Fatigue/ frequent napping
- (Morning) headaches
- Memory loss
- Anxiety and depression
- High blood pressure
- Heart attacks
- Irregular heartbeats (arrhythmia)
- Increased risk of car accidents
- Increased risk of early death (up to 15 years sooner)
