Many adults suffer from symptoms like chronic daytime fatigue, intermittent or chronic insomnia, mood swings, headaches and snoring and don’t realize that they could be suffering from an undiagnosed sleep disorder. Obstructive sleep apnea affects normal breathing patterns during sleep and causes frequent pauses in oxygen intake during the night.
Obstructive sleep apnea is a common condition that affects over 20 million people and poses a serious risk to overall health, wellness and neurological function.
Obstructive sleep apnea restricts the amount of oxygen in the blood which in turn limits the amount of oxygen being delivered to major organs like the heart and brain. The frequency and intensity of this oxygen deficit can be measured in a sleep test and is usually used to determine the degree of obstructive sleep apnea severity.
When deep sleep cycle pattern interruptions and limited levels of oxygen in the blood occur the body struggles to perform normal regenerating and restorative functions during the night. The internal result of the damage this causes to your organs may take some time to be discovered by your doctor, but the immediate symptoms of anxiety, depression, fatigue, and headaches are an indication that your sleep needs to be evaluated.
Snoring and breathing abnormalities during the day are another indication that you could be experiencing obstructive sleep apnea during the night and can also be the most ignored symptoms of the condition. Many people think snoring is not only normal but unavoidable and do little to seek solutions, but healthy sleep shouldn’t be noisy.
