Symptoms, Causes, and Cures for Sleep Apnea
Sleep Apnea is a common disorder. It’s symptoms are usually not noticeable to the person sleeping. Sleep Apnea is caused by slight pauses in breathing during sleep, and can last anywhere from a few seconds to whole minutes of paused breathing. They generally occur up to 30 times an hour throughout the night and greatly affect the quality of your sleep.
This will leave you with little energy during the day due to the poor quality of sleep you experienced. Low energy leads to less productivity. It can affect your work and your school over time. Ask your sleep doctors in Houston if you might need a sleep diagnostic test.
Sleep Apnea is the #1 Cause of Daytime Sleepiness
Sleep Apnea is often overlooked or unnoticed by you or those around you. It is commonly left un-diagnosed and untreated since it doesn’t show up easily in a regular doctors visit, and it isn’t testable for through bodily fluid like a blood test.
Getting someone to monitor your breathing overnight is the easiest way to check if you might have Sleep Apnea. If you feel that you do have a sleep disorder, Contact Us to set up a sleep study, or Polysomnography.
