Sleep Apnea Treatment Can Save Your Life
When your breathing is interrupted during sleep and you wake up feeling groggy or feel drowsy during the day because of inadequate sleep, you may be at a higher risk for several health problems. Sleep apnea is a dangerous condition that can go undiagnosed for years. If you experience symptoms such as loud snoring, insomnia, extreme drowsiness, or headaches when waking up, you may need treatment for sleep apnea.
Common Signs of Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea (CSA) are the two different types of sleep apnea. Some of the common signs and symptoms of sleep apnea include:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Drowsiness and fatigue throughout the day
- Headaches when waking up
- Loud snoring
- Falling asleep during the day
- Snorting sounds at night
Sleep Apnea Risk Factors
There are a number of risk factors for sleep apnea, including being male, being overweight, and being older than 40 years of age. If you have a large neck size or have large tonsils or a large tongue, you may also find it difficult to breathe properly while sleeping. A family history of sleep apnea, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and nasal obstruction are some other risk factors.
Sleep Apnea Treatment Options
Treatment options vary significantly by the type of sleep apnea the patient has, and the severity of the patient’s case. You may need to make lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, stopping smoking, or sleeping on your side in order to improve breathing. We may also fit you for an oral device that prevents throat blockages and improves breathing. Surgery may be the only option in very severe cases. We can discuss sleep apnea treatment options and what to expect from your treatment during your consultation.
