Studies have shown that approximately 90 million Americans snore in their sleep. While many of these individuals may be considered primary snorers, there are many that likely suffer from a more serious condition known as sleep apnea. It is beneficial to seek the assistance of a professional who can perform some exams to determine whether you fall into the snoring category or have sleep apnea.

Identifying Factors

Some key sleep apnea factors that you may not necessarily notice but your partner may be able to identify include:

  • Frequent loud snoring
  • Momentary lapses in breathing
  • Gasping or choking during sleep
  • Persistent restlessness
  • Daytime fatigue

These are all signs that a serious condition beyond snoring is present. If you notice that you suffer from any of these prime indicators, it would be in your best interest to participate in a sleep study from a sleep apnea professional. Some professionals even offer take-home tests, which allow you to take the assessment from the comfort of your own home in lieu of a traditional lab setting.

Do not dismiss any possible symptoms to being just another sleepless evening; take the additional steps necessary to ensure this potential condition isn’t placing your health at risk. Contact our office today to schedule your evaluation!
