Sleep Apnea Vs. Anemia Symptoms

Have you been feeling more fatigued lately? Do you find yourself intermittently tired during the day, with a lack of energy or vigor? When driving or performing routine tasks, do you feel start to get drowsy? Is your sex drive lacking, your mood changes, and are you, in general, more forgetful?

Well you may have Sleep Apnea… or Anemia… or is it something else? Either way, without the proper diagnosis from a professional, it’s very difficult to determine what the root of your fatigue is. This is why we always recommend getting a sleep test.  However, though some of the symptoms may seem the same, there are some symptoms that are unique to each.  Here is a quick breakdown:
