Sleep apnea is a serious condition. If you feel that you are dealing with sleep apnea, it is imperative that you contact a professional immediately. Treatment for sleep apnea begins with you. One of the first things that you can do is to begin to monitor your sleep patterns. Keep a log of when you go to sleep, when you find yourself waking up, and any other inconsistencies in your sleep. When you visit our professional, feel free to bring this log with you. This will give the professional the information they need to help you on the path to sleeping well again.
A lot of people who have sleep apnea wake up feeling tired. However, they don’t understand why they are tired all of the time. It could be that in the night while they are sleeping, they are snoring, their breathing is stopping, and they might be choking or gasping for air. Because many of the symptoms go unnoticed by the individual who is suffering from them, it is good to include your sleep partner in your sleep monitoring routine. They may notice problems you are having with your sleep that have gone unnoticed by you.
In order to diagnose sleep apnea, we may recommend that you have a sleep study performed.
Once your sleep issues have been adequately diagnosed, then treatment options will be presented that are designed to help you get over your sleep apnea. One of the best options available is NightLase®.
Sleep apnea is a serious condition. It can affect your quality of life. Since sleep apnea interrupts your sleep cycle, it will have an effect on your mood, your cognitive ability, your level of attention, and your ability to interact with others. Many who are dealing with sleep apnea have a sense of lethargy throughout the day. Since they cannot concentrate, others perceive them as absent-minded or lacking attention to detail. This affects their ability to prosper at work. For many, it interferes with their personal life.
