Do you snore loudly when you sleep? Do you wake up lethargic and exhausted, even after a full night’s rest? Do you have a hard time concentrating during the day?
If so, you may be suffering from sleep apnea. This condition stops your breathing while you sleep—sometimes hundreds of times a night! This is more than a mild inconvenience. Sleep apnea has been linked to serious health problems, such as dementia, impaired memory, high blood pressure, obesity, strokes, heart attacks, and even death. If you suspect that you or a loved one suffers from sleep apnea, call us. We want to help you get back to restful night, energetic days, and overall health.

Common Symptoms of Sleep Apnea
The very nature of sleep apnea can make it hard to tell whether or not you have it. It is more common than you might think! An estimated 22 million American suffer from sleep apnea, with many of them going undiagnosed—and untreated.
When you experience an apnea (a pause in breathing), your body wakes you up briefly in order to restart your breathing. This interrupts your sleep cycle, often leading to exhaustion and an inability to concentrate during the day. Patients with sleep apnea often don’t even remember waking up, so it is important to watch for other symptoms. Common sleep apnea symptoms include:
- Loud Snoring
- Gasping, Choking, or Snorting During Sleep
- Daytime Sleepiness, Lethargy, or Exhaustion
- Acid Reflux
- High Blood Pressure
- Poor Memory
- Headaches (especially in the morning)
- Dry Mouth or Sore Throat When Waking
- Inability to Concentrate
- Weight Gain
If you or your partner are experiencing some or all of these symptoms, it’s time to to schedule a consultation.
