If you’re someone who has been experiencing mounting fatigue and other strange symptoms and you’ve either been told it may be sleep apnea (or you’ve matched your experience up with the disorder on your own), you know something is off. However, you might not know if you’ve hit the nail on the head with your self-diagnosis, if you need a professional one (you most certainly do!), or how to proceed if it turns out this sleep disorder is affecting you. No worries! We’ve got your introductory details all ready for you, easy as 1,2,3.
Fact #1: Sleep Apnea Is Serious
If you have even the slightest concern that you may require sleep apnea treatment, it’s time to come in for a visit. This is a disorder that begins by causing you to feel tired, cranky, to experience headaches and a sore throat, and to make it difficult to concentrate. However, as it is left untreated, it can impact your body by causing serious health concerns like liver problems and heart issues.
Fact #2: You Might Not Know You Have It
Unless you’ve been putting pieces of the puzzle together on your own or someone has mentioned your extremely loud snoring (or choking events) during the night, this one may fly under the radar. You tend to forget about the events when morning comes. What events? Well, your throat tissues collapse, you stop breathing, your brain sends a message to quickly wake and breathe, you do so, and then go slip right back into sleep.
Fact #3: Treatment Is Comfortable And Effective
Sleep apnea treatment requires the use of something called an oral appliance. It’s a mouthguard that’s a breeze to wear and that will promote optimal airflow.
