Understanding the Condition of Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a relatively common condition, especially in men and those who may have thicker necks, be overweight, have larger-than-average tonsils or have a history of sleep apnea in their families. During sleep, the sleep apnea sufferer’s soft palate—the back of the throat area—falls into his or her airway. This stops air from naturally flowing, and causes the individual to start choking, snorting, gasping and/or snoring.
These episodes happen repeatedly over a typical night’s sleep, leaving the individual with many of the following symptoms the next day:
- Exhaustion, even after sleeping for seven or eight hours
- A sore, swollen, raw-feeling throat
- Headaches that are worse in the morning
- Inability to efficiently concentrate on work or regular tasks
If you recognize these signs of potential sleep apnea in yourself or your sleeping partner, or you have already had a medical professional diagnose you for sleep apnea, call us now. There are alternatives to just living with sleep apnea.
