Sleep Apnea is a serious condition that causes a disruption of breathing during sleep. It is a difficult disorder that many people do not even know that they have! Sleep apnea sufferers will often enter episodes of choking and gasping for air throughout the night. While many patients do not remember these episodes, they can be detrimental to your overall health.
For patients who are unsure about their sleep apnea status, here are some symptoms that sleep apnea patients suffer from:
- High blood pressure
- Chronic sleepiness
- Waking up in a sweat during the night
- Loud snoring
These symptoms along with many others can be signs of sleep apnea. If you think that you may have sleep apnea, then you need to seek treatment options soon.
At Dr. Philip Messer we know that overall health and oral health are linked. That is why we offer sleep apnea treatment. Oral appliances can be useful in treating sleep apnea so that you get a more restful and healthful night of sleep.
