It happens night after night: you think you are sleeping peacefully when your bed partner nudges you awake and tells you you’re snoring again. It’s driving you crazy. No wonder you never feel rested.
Actually, what might be keeping you awake is not your bed partner or your snoring—it could be sleep apnea, a life- and health-threatening condition that keeps you from getting the rest you need. If you feel chronically exhausted, are frequently irritable, wake with a headache and sore throat, experience severe daytime drowsiness, and have been told that you gasp and choke while you snore, talk to us and your health practitioner about the possibility of sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is more than snoring. The true indicator of sleep apnea is when snoring stops – and your breathing too! Sleep apnea can cause a person to stop breathing hundreds of times a night and often for a minute or longer. This oxygen depletion can lead to all kinds of dangers and health problems from unsafe driving and poor performance to high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Clearly, sleep apnea is not something to take lightly. We have seen hundreds of patients who either need a diagnosis or have been diagnosed and just can’t use their CPAP machine. Either way, we can help you get the help you need, or create a customized snore guard to supplement or replace your CPAP. Call us today!
