Sleep Apnea Symptoms
Sleep apnea in Aurora is more prevalent with people over 65, those who smoke, males, or African-American and Hispanic men
Sleep apnea can affect all aspects of your life, especially when you are experiencing daytime sleepiness. Some other symptoms may be waking with a sore or dry throat, choking during the night, gasping for air, morning headaches, loud snoring, sleepiness while driving, forgetfulness and mood changes. These may seem like normal, every day traits or occurrences, but if they involve a cessation of breathing, they are not to be ignored. Sleep apnea can cause high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, depression or even heart failure. Many people have no idea they are suffering from this malady. Treatment can be as easy as losing weight, avoiding alcohol and sleeping pills, smoking or changing your sleeping positions (do not sleep on your back). These solutions may even help your overall health. Very often though, it is recommended to have a custom fit dental device that will help keep your airways open during sleep.
