Sleep apnea goes well beyond a simple snoring problem and snoring alone isn’t necessarily an indicator of sleep apnea. That said, if you snore heavily pretty much every night, there’s a decent chance you are dealing with some form of sleeping disorder.
To find out for sure if you have sleep apnea, you should see a professional for an informed opinion. But it also doesn’t hurt for you to know what to look out for. Here are some other potential symptoms of sleep apnea:
- Frequent headaches, especially in the morning
- Waking suddenly in the night, feeling as though you’re gasping for air
- A sore or dry throat in the morning without exhibiting any other symptoms that indicate an illness
- Difficulty maintaining your focus during the day
- Trouble staying awake while driving
- Mood swings
If we determine that you have sleep apnea, we will discuss your treatment options with you. Most likely, we will recommend a custom oral appliance that you’ll use while you are sleeping. This will shift the position of your jaw slightly to prevent you from snoring and open up your airway so you can breathe freely.
You can also try some various approaches to help stop or at least diminish your symptoms of sleep apnea. If you have a sleeping disorder, you should try:
- Changing your sleeping position (sleeping on your side or propping yourself up more may help if you typically sleep on your back)
- Losing a little bit of weight depending on your body type
- Stopping drinking, or at least, drinking close to bedtime
- Stopping smoking
