If you think you have sleep apnea, the first thing you should do is talk to your doctor. They’ll help you understand the underlying cause and point you in the right direction to reducing the symptoms. They may even recommend you participate in an overnight sleep study so sleep experts can evaluate your symptoms.
And while you’re talking with your doctor, ask them if a weighted blanket could help you. (This is important because depending on your symptoms and the severity of your sleep apnea symptoms, your doctor may or may not suggest one.)
If your doctor agrees a weighted blanket could help with sleep apnea for your particular situation, then you need a high-quality weighted blanket in the appropriate size. Our rule of thumb is to purchase a weighted blanket between 7 and 12% of your body weight.
