Is it possible that I might have inherited sleep apnea from my father?

He was a smoker for a very very long time before I was born, and he had a terrible snoring problem. soo could it be inherited. I’ve only had sleep apnea twice my whole life and it started this year, I’m not overweight. And I’m 16

Possible. Only a sleep study can truly tell if you have sleep apnea. There are two types; Obstructive and central. Obstructive Sleep Apnea affects over weight patients but other things can still cause it. Central Sleep Apnea is caused when the body does not get the breath command from the brain (sleeping on your stomach won’t help this type). You should talk to your family doctor about this problem, because he or she can explain more about this. Other than that you shouldn’t worry.
