What is sleep apnea?

It’s a potentially serious condition in which your breathing periodically stops while you sleep.

Suspect you might have sleep apnea? Read through these common symptoms. They may help you determine if you need to go see your medical doctor.

Signs of Sleep Apnea

  • Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
  • Insomnia
  • Sleep Deprivation
  • Excessive Snoring
  • Episodes of Not Breathing
  • Mouth Breathing
  • Dry Mouth/Throat
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent Headaches
  • Irritability

Don’t misunderstand, having one of these symptoms is typically fine. But if you have more than one, you might want to schedule an appointment with your doctor.

Three Types of Sleep Apnea

There are three different types of sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea describes a condition where your throat muscles relax. Central sleep apnea, occurs when your brain doesn’t send proper signals to control your breathing. The final type is called complex sleep apnea syndrome. This form is present when a patient has both of the other two types.

If you are diagnosed as having Obstructive Sleep Apnea, make sure you research all treatment options. Some types of sleep apnea can be treated with a dental appliance. Treatment can ease your symptoms and help prevent heart problems and other issues.
