Daytime Fatigue? It May Be OSA

People with obstructive sleep apnea struggle to breathe as they sleep, and usually are tired during their waking hours. It’s a common and serious condition, but there is help at SLEEPwell in Longview.

There are several types of sleep apnea, but obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common. It happens when the sleeper’s airway is blocked, usually by soft tissues in the back of the throat.

The person with OSA may stop and restart breathing repeatedly during the night. Among other complications, it deprives the brain of oxygen. Most people with OSA aren’t aware of what’s happening, because stopping and restarting breathing happens below the level of consciousness.

They’re usually aware of the effects, though. People with OSA are often fatigued and sleepy during the day because they aren’t getting adequate rest. Being underrested can also affect memory and concentration.

More worrisome, people with OSA are at greater risk of hypertension and cardiovascular problems.

OSA is most common in men, but anyone can have sleep apnea, even children. At SLEEPwell in Longview we treat sleep apnea. People from Gladewater, Hallsville, and New Diana have turned to us for help. If you or someone you love has sleep issues, please give us a call to schedule an appointment today!
