Denied Sleep Apnea Disability Benefits?
Trust an ERISA Attorney with 30+ Years’ Experience
Sleep apnea can be a serious sleep disorder. If you snore loudly or wake up tired even after a full night’s sleep, you may have sleep apnea or another sort of sleep disorder. Sleep apnea commonly appears in two forms, obstructive sleep apnea or central sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the muscles in the throat relax, obstructing normal breathing. Central sleep apnea occurs when the brain doesn’t signal breathing muscles properly. Sleep apnea can develop other complications if not treated.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea symptoms overlap between types of sleep apnea, making it difficult to determine which a person is suffering from. If you recognize these symptoms, pursue treatment and evaluation from a medical professional. This will help in your pursuit of disability benefits.
Symptoms of sleep apnea may include the following:
- Daytime sleepiness
- Loud snoring
- Breathing cessation
- Abrupt awakenings
- Shortness of breath when woken
- Dry mouth or a sore throat
