Many people underestimate the dangers of sleep apnea. If left untreated, serious health conditions can occur throughout your body such as high blood pressure, stroke, depression, irritability, and excessive daytime sleepiness. That is why it’s important to understand sleep apnea and the signs, so you can get treatment immediately.
Common signs of sleep apnea include:
• Gasping for air as you sleep
• Choking sounds as you sleep
• Difficulty staying asleep
• Morning headaches
In case you are unaware, sleep apnea is a common condition that can cause you to stop breathing as you sleep. Therefore, as you sleep, your oxygen levels drop. This is serious because your body needs healthy oxygen levels to be healthy. That is why it is essential to talk to your dentist if you are suffering from sleep apnea.
