What do you do when you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)? Instead of letting this disorder harm your long-term health, why not tackle the problem head on? We often help our Pearland, TX, patients with OSA by prescribing a personalized sleep solution!
What Causes OSA?
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when our breathing is blocked as we sleep. Soft tissues in the back of the throat and in the moth become too relaxed. They then collapse and block airways. Patients stop breathing until the brain wakes them. People don’t remember being woken up, even though this happens hundreds of times a night in some cases. Over time, the disorder leaves patients exhausted and sleep deprived. In the long term, the disorder may increase the risk of depression, high blood pressure, falling asleep behind the wheel, stroke, and heart attack. Treating the issue early helps improve your overall health!
The Warning Signs of Sleep Apnea
In order to treat the issue, you need to know what signs to watch for. Many patients with the disorder develop chronic snoring, wake up with dry mouth, and wake suddenly in the night choking or struggling to breathe for a few seconds. Other warning signs could include daytime drowsiness, headaches, moodiness, and difficulty concentrating on tasks at work or school. If you experience any of these warning signs, then we urge you to see us for a diagnosis. Using a home sleep test, we will see if you benefit from treatment. This diagnostic device will offer accurate results without requiring you to rest in a lab setting. Talk to our team to find out more!
