Other things that should concern you:
headaches, sore throat, “cotton mouth”, daytime drowsiness, lack of concentration, irritability and even depression are signs that you need to have these looked at and treated.
There’s a couple of types of sleep apnea. Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) and Obstructed Sleep Apnea (OSA). Both are just as concerning as the other.
Central Sleep Apnea is when your brain fails to let your body know that it’s time to breathe. You can go several seconds without a breath and wake up gasping for air. You need oxygen! You can do this repeatedly every couple seconds in an hour and you will get up extremely exhausted and feel like you’re in a fog all day.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is the most common for sleep apneas. The biggest obstructer in your mouth is your tongue. When you sleep, your tongue can fall back onto your throat and cut off your airway. Of course, you try to breathe and make horrific noises in your attempt. In other words, snore!
Lack of sleep will follow you and catch up with you all day long. Falling asleep at the wheel in the middle of the day and especially at night, causes more accidents and death than we can describe. Cardiovascular disease is a direct disorder caused by lack of oxygen and lack of rest. Other problems that are related to sleep apnea is diabetes, erectile dysfunction, arthritis, and Alzheimers Disease. Believe or not, your sleep has so much influence on your daily living.
