Sleep Apnea Treatment
During sleep your body is working to support healthy brain function. A lack of quality sleep is tied to bad moods, increase risk of illness, weight gain, lack of focus, and more.
Sleep apnea is a condition that causes an individual to stop breathing frequently throughout the night. If you suffer from sleep apnea, the quality of your sleep may be impacted. The temporary oxygen deprivation you experience could lead to serious health issues over time, including stroke, heart disease and organ failure. Below are some of the common symptoms you could experience if you have sleep apnea.
If you experience loud snoring that is prominent throughout the night, it could be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea.
Waking with Shortness of Breath
Regularly waking up gasping for breath is a common side effect of sleep apnea.
If you struggle to stay awake and alert throughout the day no matter how early you get to bed, sleep apnea could be disrupting your body’s sleep cycles.
Morning Dry Mouth
Waking up with dry mouth could be a sign that you’re struggling to get enough air at night.
If you have difficulty falling or staying asleep, sleep apnea could be affecting the quality of your sleep.
