            • Stopping breathing during sleep
            • Choking episodes during sleep
            • Overweight
            • Morning headaches
            • Depression
            • Frequent trips to the bathroom during the night
            • Waking with a dry mouth/sore throat
            • Waking unrefreshed despite a 'normal' nights sleep
            • Difficulty concentrating, irritability
            • High blood pressure
        Sleep apnoea is most common among men, people who are overweight and the middle-aged. However, research shows that children and post-menopausal women may also be at risk.
