changes or solutions is recommended.

03/19/2021

Sleep apnea is a health disorder that affects your breathing while asleep. This disorder is most commonly caused by a blocked or narrowed airway in your nose, mouth or throat, due to relaxed muscles in your throat and tongue while you sleep. Sleep apnea can range from mild to severe based on how often your lungs don’t get enough air.
The symptoms of sleep apnea can include:
• Waking up feeling tired or with a headache
• Fatigue throughout the day
• Lapses in breathing while asleep
• Loud snoring, gasping or choking
To get a proper diagnosis for sleep apnea, your doctor will likely speak with you and your partner, or schedule a sleep study. Luckily, there are a few ways that you can manage or treat sleep apnea, including, but
not limited to, living a healthier lifestyle, weight loss, sleeping on your side, or an oral breathing device.
