Snoring is one of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea, but what if you snooze solo and no one’s there to hear you sawing wood? Wake up and check your pits: Nighttime sweating can be a sign of sleep apnea, according to new research in BMJ Open.

People with the sleep disorder were three times as likely as healthy people to report heavy perspiration three or more nights a week.

One theory: When your airway is obstructed, you work up a sweat just trying to breathe, says study author Thorarinn Gislason, M.D., Ph.D., of Landspitali University Hospital in Iceland.

Steaming up your pajamas? Seek out a sleep lab that’s accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (sleepeducation.com/find-a-center).
