• Waking tired after sleep
• Dry throat when you wake up
• Morning headaches
• Having problems with memory and concentration
• Feeling irritable and nervous

Disruptive snoring may be a more prominent characteristic of obstructive sleep apnea, while awakening with shortness of breath may be more common with central sleep apnea.
People with sleep apnea often feel tired and sleepy during the day because their sleep quality is affected, as they move out of deep sleep and into light sleep several times during the night. Sleep apnea causes a reduction of oxygen in the bloodstream which results in overall deprivation of cellular functions in your body
