If you’re not overweight or obese, you most likely do not have sleep apnea.
Individuals with a normal BMI can have sleep apnea or Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome.
If you don’t snore, you likely don’t have sleep apnea.
Snoring can be absent in individuals with sleep apnea.
If you do not have desaturations on an overnight oximetry or sleep study, you do not have sleep apnea.
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.
If you wake up with a morning headache, it is most likely because of sleep apnea.
Morning headaches are not decisive symptoms for sleep apnea. In many cases, however, migraine frequency is exacerbated in untreated sleep apnea.
