Sleep Self Assessment Quiz

There are consequences to untreated sleep apnea: high blood pressure and other cardiovascular, weight gain, job impairment and motor vehicle accidents, and personality changes such as moodiness and irritability.

This sleep quiz is an important tool designed to both quickly and easily determine if a sleep disorder could possibly be present or be a factor in your overall health and well being.

The taking of this test and the results obtained in no way substitutes for a medical assessment or diagnostic procedure, but serves as a useful guide to help focus future searches and discussions.
