Sleep apnea is affecting the quality of your sleep every night
Many people find themselves jolting awake or gasping for breath as a result of not breathing due to sleep apnea. If you’ve lived with it for a long time, you may be so used to being tired during the day that you’re not even aware of how worn out it’s making you. Treating your sleep apnea will help improve the quality of your sleep, making it easier to go about your daily routine.
Your sleep apnea is affecting your spouse or partner’s sleep
“But wait a minute!” you’re thinking. “I’m the one who isn’t getting the right kind of sleep!” That may be true, but your partner is impacted by your sleeping and waking patterns as well. Your tossing and turning may be keeping your partner up at night. So, if you aren’t worried about the quality of your own sleep, worry about the quality of your partner’s sleep.
Your overall health is negatively impacted by your sleep apnea
Even if you aren’t convinced that it’s impacting your day-to-day life, your sleep apnea can be a detriment to your health. It leads to increased instances of heart problems, including heart disease and even heart failure; diabetes; stroke; and even death. The longer you wait to treat it, the more severe these potential consequences can become.
Fortunately, there are more options available than a traditional CPAP machine. Certain dental appliances, for example, can have a significant impact on your sleep apnea without requiring you to be hooked up to a machine every night.
