Because of the breathing interruptions during sleep, patients affected by sleep apnea may awake with a gasp during the night. Other common symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea include:

  • Snoring
  • Excessive daytime drowsiness
  • TMJ Disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Delicate women with slender necks
  • Fragmented, non-refreshing sleep
  • Clouded memory
  • Decreased sex drive and impotence
  • Morning headaches
  • Irritability and personality changes
  • Gasping or choking during the night
  • History of stroke or high blood pressure

If you suffer from one or more of these symptoms, you may have sleep apnea. We encourage you to contact our office in Boise, Idaho today to schedule your individual consultation with Dr. Powell.
