Sleep Quiz

Answer yes or no to the following questions, keeping a tally in your head or on paper of how many times you answer yes and how many times you answer no.

  • Do you snore?
  • Are you usually sleepy during the day?
  • Are you overweight?
  • Do you have morning headaches?
  • Have you been diagnosed with high blood pressure?
  • Are you tired all of the time? Are you tired even when you wake up in the morning?
  • Do you have a hard time staying alert in meetings, reading, driving a car, or watching television?
  • Do you ever wake up gasping or short of breath?
  • Do you hold your breath while sleeping and wake yourself up with a loud snort?
  • Does your body move often while you sleep?

If you answered yes to two or more of these questions, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder. Untreated, sleep apnea can cause debilitating sleepiness, increase the chances of driving accidents and may lead to health complications including heart problems. If you suspect a sleep disorder, contact your primary care provider or call the Sleep Disorders Center at 731-541-6834.
