What is Sleep Apnea?
How do you know if your snoring is normal or if you have sleep apnea? It helps to understand the condition. According to the Mayo Clinic, sleep apnea is a sleep disorder defined by pauses in breath in your sleep that can leave you snoring loudly or feeling tired when you wake up.
The disease can occur in two forms, though obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the more common type. OSA typically occurs when an airway collapses, causing shallow breaths or pauses in breathing that can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes.
Central sleep apnea (CSA), on the other hand, occurs when your brain stops sending the right signals to the muscles that control breathing.
Approximately 20 percent of the adult population has been impacted by sleep apnea—but around 90 percent remain undiagnosed. Untreated sleep apnea can lead to severe health problems so if you suffer from sleep problems, schedule your FREE consultation today to avoid further complications tomorrow.
Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
Snoring is a common and normal part of life for many. But in some cases, it can be indicative of a deeper problem that can impact your ability to sleep through a night and affect your everyday life. If you find yourself snoring heavily and can relate to the following symptoms, it’s possible that you have sleep apnea:
- Your loved ones have heard you gasping for air in your sleep
- You wake up feeling as though you’re not well rested
- You sometimes feel excessively drowsy during the day
- You’ve lost energy and motivation
- You have high blood pressure
- You’ve had difficulty concentrating
- You have Type II Diabetes
- You suffered a stroke or heart attack
Sleep Apnea Side Effects
If you have this type of sleep disorder, you may be noticing some sleep apnea side effects, such as:
- Daytime drowsiness
- Weight gain
- Memory loss
- And more
If left untreated, it’s also possible that sleep apnea can lead to more serious health complications. More specifically, it can be a contributing risk factor for:
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- And more
It’s estimated that nearly 70 percent of those who suffer from a stroke have sleep apnea, while around 60 percent of those with diabetes simultaneously suffer from OSA. It’s also important to note that sleep apnea can significantly increase your chances of having a car accident—in fact, a person who has untreated sleep apnea is around seven times more likely to be involved in an auto accident than someone who does not.
Sleep Apnea Treatment in New Jersey
Are you ready to fight your sleep apnea with a long-term solution that’s customized to meet your needs? Our sleep apnea treatment may be the cure you’re looking for. The ideal candidate typically suffers from any of the following issues:
- CPAP intolerance. A CPAP is prescribed to provide continuous positive airflow pressure for those with sleep apnea. However, it involves wearing a mask-like object that can sometimes be too uncomfortable for sleep. If you’ve been diagnosed with a CPAP but find it’s not helping your sleep apnea, you may benefit from an oral appliance like the one we use in our Clark office.
- Snoring. Loud snoring can often occur when your airways are obstructed and your body fights for air, as is the case with sleep apnea. If your snoring becomes so loud that you and/or your loved ones can’t sleep or you experience it in combination with daytime fatigue, weight gain, irritability, or headaches, you may be suffering from sleep apnea.
- Not feeling well rested. If you’re struggling to breathe throughout the night, it can disturb your rest and cause you to wake up feeling as though you’re not well rested. In this case, you may be a prime candidate for sleep apnea treatment with an oral appliance.
At Northeast Spine & Wellness Center, we offer a free consultation to determine the best sleep apnea treatment for you. After appropriate testing and diagnosis by one of our sleep medicine specialists, we will provide you with an oral appliance—a retainer-like product you wear in your sleep to help with breathing. Unlike the CPAP, oral appliances become comfortable quickly and are non-invasive. We also examine your posture and muscular structure, among other things, to provide a well-rounded solution for your condition.
