A Good Night’s Sleep?

It seems like everyone complains about not getting a good night’s sleep. From trouble falling asleep to trouble staying asleep, more than a quarter of all Americans say they have some kind of issue. But as bad as these are, sleep apnea is in a class by itself. There is help available at SLEEPwell Longview.

Millions of Americans cope with sleep apnea. The condition takes several forms, but what they have in common is that your breathing is interrupted during sleep, over and over through the night.

Left untreated, sleep apnea contributes to some serious, potentially life-threatening conditions:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke

There are some tell-tale signs that someone has sleep apnea. Loud snoring is often mentioned, although snoring alone is not a symptom.

Signs of Sleep Apnea

Common signs include:

  • Loud snoring, accompanied by pauses in breathing. This can happen repeatedly through the night.
  • Insomnia
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Waking up with a headache
  • Waking up with a dry mouth or a sore throat
  • Trouble concentrating on what you’re doing during the day
  • Irritability and mood swings

Certain risk factors have also been identified, such as:

  • Being overweight
  • Drinking alcohol
  • Sexual dysfunction

Sleep apnea occurs most often in adults, but children are not immune. According to a study at Johns Hopkins Univeristy, up to twenty percent of children who snore may have it.

The bottom line is that sleep apnea is more common than we tend to think. It is also treatable. SLEEPwell Longview offers combined therapy for sleep apnea., and we’ve helped people from Gladewater, Hallsville, and New Diana. If you think that you, or someone close to you, has sleep apnea, do not hesitate to contact us today.
