Did you know that more than 18 million American’s deal with sleep apnea? Sleep apnea is a condition that causes airway blockages reducing your oxygen as you sleep. This can put stress and damage on your body’s organs.
There are symptoms to help you spot sleep apnea. Age and severe weight gain can trigger sleep apnea as well. Other symptoms include falling asleep throughout the day because of the low quality of sleep you get from the lack of oxygen in your body. You may also wake up feeling restless, fatigued, or even suffer from insomnia because of your sleep apnea. The most common signs include waking up from sleep with a choking sound or gasping for breath, and very loud snoring.
If you believe you may have sleep apnea, then it is a great idea to talk to Dr. Jason Roe about your situation and symptoms. Some questions he will ask will be about your sleeping schedule and how rested you may feel throughout your day. It is important, to be honest as you address his questions, so you can get the best form of treatment that is right for you.
