SLEEP APNEA and SNORING

WHAT IS SLEEP APNEA?

Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. You may have sleep apnea if you snore loudly and you feel tired even after a full night’s sleep.

There are two main types of sleep apnea:

  1. Obstructive sleep apnea, the more common form that occurs when throat muscles relax
  2. Central sleep apnea, which occurs when your brain doesn’t send proper signals to the muscles that control breathing

  • Excessive daytime sleepiness which may cause you to fall asleep while you’re working, watching television or even driving
  • Loud snoring, which is usually more prominent in obstructive sleep apnea
  • Episodes of breathing cessation during sleep witnessed by another person
  • Abrupt awakenings accompanied by shortness of breath, which more likely indicates central sleep apnea
  • Awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat
  • Morning headache
  • Difficulty staying asleep (insomnia)

Attention problems

  • Snoring loud enough to disturb the sleep of others or yourself
  • Shortness of breath that awakens you from sleep
  • Intermittent pauses in your breathing during sleep

If you think you might have sleep apnea or if you experience loud snoring, especially snoring that’s punctuated by periods of silencesee be sure to see your medical doctor. Apnea can threaten your health, not just your sleep, including serious problems with viral infections, weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, mental illness, even mortality.
