- Obstructive sleep apnea – This is the most common of the three and it happens when throat muscles relax.
- Central sleep apnea – This occurs when the brain doesn’t send signals to the muscles that control the breathing.
- Complex sleep apnea syndrome – This is also known as treatment emergent central sleep apnea. It occurs when the person has both, obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea.
- Loud snoring
- Times of breathing cessation during sleep

Frequently Asked Qustions
Can sleep apnea cause you to gain weight?
A growing body of research is finding a link between sleep disorders and weight gain. And it can be a vicious cycle. Insufficient sleep can lead to weight gain, which can lead to a serious problem called sleep apnea, which produces more sleep deprivation and more packing on of the pounds.
Can you have obstructive sleep apnea without snoring?
However many obstructive sleep apnea patients DO NOT SNORE. Snoring is only one sign of obstructive sleep apnea. In fact, if a long time snorer no longer snores, this may actually indicate that his or her obstructive sleep apnea has increased in severity in that there is now complete blockage of the airway.
