In the spring season everything becomes new again, right? While this typically means green grass, bright flowers, and trees full of leaves, what does it mean for your sleep and health? Before the summer season begins, kick your health into gear and begin taking advantage of your sleeping patterns.
So, without further ado, let’s get a better night’s sleep by receiving proper treatment for sleep apnea! After all, your bed partner will thank you.
What is Sleep Apnea and Do You Have It?
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when breathing repeatedly stops and starts—sometimes hundreds of times a night (yikes!). If you snore loudly, or you find yourself still feeling exhausted in the morning even after eight hours of sleep, you might have sleep apnea.
To help you better understand sleep apnea, some common signs and symptoms include:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Loud snoring
- Episodes of pauses in breathing during the night
- Waking abruptly with shortness of breath (gasping for air)
- Dry mouth or sore throat upon waking up
- Morning headaches
- Difficulty staying asleep or staying awake
- Attention problems throughout the day
