Abstract

Introduction: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is a common breathing disorder characterized by repeated episodes of upper airway collapse during sleep. While loud snoring and daytime sleepiness are the main symptoms, a variety of complaints including headaches may constitute the clinical manifestations. Â Materials and Methods: We conducted this cross sectional study on 178 adult individuals diagnosed with OSAS at the sleep laboratory of Ebn-e-Sina hospital. Overnight polysomnography provided the diagnosis of OSAS and its severity. All participants were examined by neurologist. Â Results: Headache was the forth common chief complaint. This study showed no correlation between headache and the severity of OSAS, body mass index(BMI), Sleep efficiency and hypoxia in OSAS patients; however, all of the patients with headache had anxiety or depression. Â Conclusion: According to this study, chronic headache is a common presenting complaint in patients diagnosed with OSAS. Therefore, it is recommended that sleep apnea is a diagnostic consideration in individuals suffering from chronic headache accompanied by snoring and daytime sleepiness.
