Sleep Apnea in Alpharetta, GA
Beat Sleep Apnea
Is a sleep disorder keeping you and your bed partner awake all night long, night after night? Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or chronic snoring could be to blame. Sleep apnea consists of irregular pauses in breathing that occur continuously throughout the night. Chronic snoring consists of a vibration in the back of the throat that causes the sufferer to snore. When you suffer from one of these sleep disorders, you may experience symptoms like:
- Headaches in the morning
- Dry throat and mouth in the morning
- Fatigue or sleepiness during the day
- Difficulty concentrating
- Waking up frequently during the night
Unfortunately, sleeplessness is also linked to:
- Slower learning and memory loss
- High blood pressure
- Higher risk of car accidents
- Cardiac problems
- Gastro-esophageal reflux disease
