Mixed sleep apnea can have different symptoms. Because mixed sleep apnea usually starts as obstructive sleep disorder, the most common symptom is disruptive snoring. Your breath might be shallow, or it might stop entirely for ten seconds or more as you sleep. You might snore loudly, snort, or gasp while you sleep. You may awaken abruptly with shortness of breath, or a sore throat. During the day, you may wake up with a headache. You may not feel well-rested, and you may have trouble concentrating.
