Is continuous diffulty in swallowing be a sign of sleep apnea.I have poor sleep and wake up with sore throat.MD dismissed sleep apnea as iam not obese?
See an ENT: Swallowing difficulty is not a typical sign of sleep apnea, but can be related to other problems that may affect your sleep (like very large tonsils, for example). This should be evaluated by an ENT. Throat could be sore because of dryness and irritation from mouth-breathing/snoring, sinus drainage, or acid reflux. If your nose is obstructed (e.g. deviated septum), this can worsen mouth breathing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Consistent oxygen saturation of 89-90 while sleeping. Is this considered obstructive sleep apnea?
Right on the brink: Typically, O2 sats while asleep in a healthy individual should be >90. If yours are typically hitting 90 or below then, I'd say you are right in the crack between barely normal and barely abnormal. I'd think for a 19 year old nonsmoker you could do a bit better than that so it all depends on what else is going on.
