If you are frequently exhausted during the day, or your partner frequently comments on your loud, snoring patterns, you may be one of the many Americans suffering from sleep apnea.
Caused by the obstruction of airflow as you sleep, sleep apnea ultimately causes patients to stop breathing for seconds at a time, depriving the brain and body of oxygen. In addition to loud snoring, sleep apnea can lead to:
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Irritability and mood swings
- Dry mouth or throat
- Headaches, migraines
Without treatment, patients can experience a range of health issues, including depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.
