Frequently Asked Questions
What are the warning signs or symptoms of sleep apnea?
Some of the common symptoms associated with sleep apnea are as follows:
- Loud snoring
- Sleepiness or lack of energy during the day
- Morning headaches
- Forgetfulness and mood swings
- Decreased libido
- Drowsiness while driving
- Restless sleep
- Waking with a choking/gasping sensation
- Waking with a dry/sore throat
The best way to find out if you have sleep apnea is by undergoing a sleep study. A sleep study can be performed under the supervision of a physician in a lab, or in the privacy of your own home. It will record data such as oxygen levels, brain activity, and muscle movement and a physician will determine if, in fact, you have sleep apnea. Then we can start treatment right away.
