Myths About Sleep Apnea and Sleep Disporders

MYTH:

If you’re not overweight or obese, you most likely do not have sleep apnea.

FACT:

Individuals with a normal BMI can have sleep apnea or Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome.


MYTH:

If you don’t snore, you likely don’t have sleep apnea.

FACT:

Snoring can be absent in individuals with sleep apnea.


MYTH:

If you do not have desaturations on an overnight oximetry or sleep study, you do not have sleep apnea.

FACT:

Oxygen saturations can be normal. The EEG arousals from sleep apnea and work of breathing through a narrow airway contribute to fatigue and medical morbidity.


MYTH:

If you wake up with a morning headache, it is most likely because of sleep apnea.

FACT:

Morning headaches are not decisive symptoms for sleep apnea. In many cases, however, migraine frequency is exacerbated in untreated sleep apnea.
