Signs of Sleep Apnea
- Posted on: Aug 23 2013
Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that can dramatically affect your physical, mental and emotional health. If you have been diagnosed with the disorder, our experienced sleep apnea dentists can help you find the right treatment.
The only way to know if you have sleep apnea is to be evaluated by a qualified doctor. Some of the common signs of sleep apnea include:
- Loud, recurring snoring
- Waking up with a headache
- Gasping for air during the night
- Problems with concentration and memory
- Irritability and mood swings
- Extreme and unrelenting fatigue throughout the day
If someone shares your bed with you, he or she may notice pauses in your breathing while you sleep, which may indicate sleep apnea. Although loud, chronic snoring often accompanies sleep apnea, snoring alone does not mean you have sleep apnea. There are many people who snore and do not suffer from this sleep condition. If you are concerned about snoring – or other household members have told you about your snoring – then you should get a medical evaluation from your doctor.
If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea in Arlington or the surrounding areas, please contact Galleria Dental Aesthetics to schedule a treatment consultation.
