Feeling Tired All The Time? It Could be Sleep Apnea

Wondering if you have sleep apnea, a common sleeping disorder in which people will stop breathing during the night for a short period of time? If you tend to feel tired all the time, then it is very likely that your sleeping is somehow being interrupted. When you do not get enough sleep, it interferes with your ability to properly function. Those who are sleep deprived are simply not able to function as well as if they were to get a good night's sleep. Ready to find out more about how to solve your problem?

Sleep apnea disorder

When someone is diagnosed with sleep apnea, it means that the soft tissues in the back of their throat are blocking their airway, which prevents air from reaching their lungs. Some of the reasons why these tissues would be blocking the airway include the fact that airway muscles have become weak, or that someone may have a big tongue that blocks the airway and that they are overweight, which means the airway is surrounded by excess tissue.

Sleep apnea signs

The below list includes some of the more common sleep apnea signs. It really is important for people to make sure that they do not have this sleeping disorder, as untreated sleep apnea is directly connected to a number of other health risks.

Sleep apnea signs include loud consistent snoring, feeling tired the next day after being in bed all night, feeling depressed, feeling irritable, experiencing headaches early in the morning and making frequent trips to the bathroom.

Sleep apnea risks

When sleep apnea is undiagnosed, it can lead to the person experiencing a number of additional health problems. It really is essential for everyone to get a good night's sleep, as this is the time when the body replenishes itself. If the body is not able to rest during the night when we are sleeping, then there can be accompanying health effects as a result.

Sleep apnea risks include high blood pressure, type two diabetes, heart disease, heart attacks and strokes.
