Can Stress Cause Sleep Apnea?

Stress can cause a number of health issues but sleep apnea is not one of them. However, sleep apnea can certainly cause stress because of the complications of the disorder. Specifically:

  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Heart problems
  • Metabolic problems
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Relationship problems (due to partner not being able to sleep)

Any one of these complications can result in stress. So while sleep apnea is not caused by stress, it is a dangerous condition that results in it.
