Most of us enjoy going to sleep and why wouldn’t we? Going to sleep puts us in a peaceful state that erases the stresses of the day, making the saying that “things look better in the morning” not only a true statement but an accurate one. Even for those of us that snore, a good night’s rest does wonders for the body and the mind, especially those deep sleep when your subconscious takes over and your dreams are so vivid that you can remember them when you wake up in the morning. Although snoring is annoying it’s also a way that helps people breathe while sleeping, allowing them to take in extra oxygen through their mouths as well as through their noses. However, some people suffer from a condition that causes breathing to stop momentarily while sleeping. This condition is commonly known as sleep apnea.
People may wonder if breathing stops momentarily why worry. It’s not like you will never breathe again and can be considered as something similar to a cough. While coughing, you temporarily stop breathing as you force air out of your lungs, instead of taking air into your lungs, as you would normally do. Unfortunately, it is not that easy. Having sleep apnea can lead to various health problems including, high blood pressure, heart failure, or sometimes even death. One of the problems of having sleep apnea is that you may not know that you have it. Many of the symptoms of sleep apnea are similar to many other medical problems including stress making it even harder to determine if you are in need of treatment. That’s why it’s important to visit doctors specializing in treating sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. This will allow you to ask questions, take tests, and discuss treatments resulting in a better night’s sleep as well as a peace of mind about waking up in the morning.
