Do you even know that you may snore in your sleep? You might as well go and ask your bed partners or family members for this. 

Or you can think back and ask yourself the following question — do I often feel sleepy when my hands are on keyboard or wheel? If you do, then you could have been suffering from obstructive sleep apnea.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)?

OSA refers to a recurrent symptom that breath stops constantly during sleep. It is usually caused by collapsing of the upper airway, which would result in air shortage in lungs and hence micro-arousal, sleep rhythm disorder and lower blood oxygen level.
