Sleep apnea is a potentially serious condition that causes a disruption of breathing during sleep—yet it is a disorder that many people do not even know that they have. Sleep apnea sufferers will often have episodes of choking and gasping for air throughout the night. While many patients do not remember these episodes, they can be detrimental to your overall health.
Some sleep apnea symptoms:
- Loud snoring
- High blood pressure
- Chronic sleepiness
- Waking up in a sweat during the night
These symptoms, along with many others, can be signs of sleep apnea. If you think that you may have this conditions, we suggest you seek treatment options soon.
