Do you feel completely exhausted by the afternoon, even after you've had a full night of sleep? Do often struggle with headaches or migraines? Do you find that you have a hard time concentrating on tasks throughout your day? Are you accused of snoring loudly enough at night to keep your bed partner awake?
Signs of Sleep Apnea
These are all signs that you could be suffering from a sleep disorder called sleep apnea.
The most common type of sleep apnea occurs when your airway becomes blocked, and breathing is restricted. It signals your brain to wake you up when you don't receive enough oxygen. If you suffer from sleep apnea, you could be waking up multiple times throughout the night, even if you don't realize it. This means that your body doesn't get the rest it needs to rejuvenate during the night, which causes some very debilitating symptoms that affect your quality of life.
Sleep Apnea Treatments in Scottsdale
A general physician will recommend CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy for you to help you manage your sleep apnea. If you are having trouble wearing the mask comfortably at night or being compliant with CPAP therapy, Dr. Sheth offers an alternative treatment for sleep apnea with a custom oral appliance.
