In brief: Not just snoring

The real issue is feeling tired.
If you wake up and feel you could sleep for several more hours, if you could or do nap during the day, if you fall asleep watching tv or a movie, if you fall asleep while driving ........ You may have sleep apnea. If your fatigue is an issue you should see your doctor and have them schedule you for a sleep study.

In brief: Sleep apnea diagnose

The only way to tell if you have sleep apnea is to be tested.
Testing can be done both at home and in a sleep lab.
