SNORING ISN’T JUST ANNOYING
Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) are signs you might not be getting the air your body needs while you sleep. Leaving sleep apnea untreated is like gambling with your life every night. Snoring is the alarm to let you know something is wrong, like your smoke alarm in your house. Left untreated, sleep apnea can cause many dangerous medical issues, and even death. Each hour, your body stops breathing, slowly suffocating the body’s cells and depriving them of oxygen. Eventually, the cells become permanently damaged due to the lack of oxygen.
One of the most important symptoms of OSA is loud snoring. Other symptoms of OSA include excessive daytime sleepiness, headaches (especially in the morning), not feeling rested right after waking up in the morning, and dry mouth. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, you might want to get evaluated by your family physician to get a sleep study performed.
