  1. Persistent snoring

Everybody snores from time to time, but if you snore constantly and if your partner regularly notices it, then you might have this disorder.

People who are obese are more likely to suffer from obstructive sleep apnoea. In turn, the condition can cause weight gain, possibly because constant sleepiness may diminish your metabolism making it easier to put on weight.
