This is a question you might be asking yourself, or maybe you should be asking yourself. Over 200,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with sleep apnea every year. There is even a larger margin of people who have sleep apnea but attribute the symptoms to other ailments. The majority of Americans with sleep apnea go undiagnosed and untreated.
The most common causes of sleep apnea are age and obesity. Here is a list of potential symptoms caused by Sleep Apnea:
Insomnia / Nightmares
Getting a full night sleep and still feel tired
Witnessed pauses in breathing while sleeping
Mood Swings / Irritability / Depression
Problems with memory, concentration or attention
High blood pressure
A neck size bigger than 18 inches
If you are experiencing 3 or more of these symptoms it is advised to speak to your Doctor about being tested for Sleep Apnea. A lot of these symptoms are generally ignored or assumed as normal. It is important to know that CPAP therapy can eliminate these symptoms. If you have never used CPAP therapy before, you could be missing out on an incredible night of sleep you never thought possible. If you have Sleep Apnea and use CPAP therapy you will immediately notice an improvement in your health, the way you feel, and your energy level.
