Sleep study: You should first be evaluated by a physician who can examine you and make sure there are no other obvious causes of breathing difficulty. The best way to evaluate sleep apnea vs upper airway resistance syndrome is with an overnight sleep study. You may be monitored in a sleep lab or sometimes at home with many sensors to help make a diagnosis.
