Health Risks Associated with Sleep-Disordered Breathing
Leaving sleep apnea unchecked leaves you at much higher risk for health complications….some of them serious. If you have already been diagnosed by a certified sleep physician, then more than likely you’re already pretty familiar with usual symptoms associated with this breathing disorder.
Typical Sleep Apnea Symptoms
- Excessive sleepiness
- Morning headaches
- Disrupted sleep
- Sore or dry throat
- Inability to concentrate
- Memory problems
- Loud Snoring
- Decrease in sex drive
- Slower reaction times
If you haven’t yet been diagnosed with sleep apnea and have any of these symptoms, it is important to visit your health provider for a diagnosis. If you suspect you have sleep apnea, don’t delay. There are more serious risks and health issues that affect those suffering from the disorder.
