Have you been a loud snorer for quite some time? Has anyone ever told you that you make choking sounds throughout the night? If either of these rings true, it is certainly time you speak with us about sleep apnea. The not-so-wonderful news is that this sleep disorder is quite disruptive and can lead to challenging symptoms (and health problems when neglected). The great news is that we offer sleep apnea treatment, so you can return to comfortable, undisturbed nightly sleep.

About Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that can include extremely loud snoring – however, snoring does not necessarily mean you suffer from this problem. Snoring occurs when your throat muscles partially relax and come into contact with one another. Sleep apnea occurs when your throat muscles completely relax, caving in on one another and blocking your ability to breathe. These episodes last up to a minute, often hundreds of times per night, depriving your bloodstream and brain of fresh oxygen.

Common Symptoms

You will wake up with a start, making a loud noise as you try to inhale a great deal of air. This happens when your brain recognizes you are not breathing and that it needs oxygen. Additional symptoms of this sleep disorder (signs that you likely require sleep apnea treatment) include:

  • Daily fatigue
  • Feeling moody
  • Feeling depressed
  • Trouble focusing
  • A sore throat when you wake up
  • Headaches
