Haunted houses and scary movies aren’t the only thing keeping millions of people up at night this October.

Sleep apnea is the darkness that lurks in households night after night, keeping sufferers, and their spouses, from good night’s rest.

If you’re one of them, all that changes today!

You’re going to learn about how sleep apnea haunts your days and nights, and how our team at Tieken Smiles in League City, TX can help!

Sleep Apnea Haunts Your Nights

The first line of attack for someone with sleep apnea happens during the night.

In fact, it’s one of the reasons diagnosing it is such a challenge. Most people will suffer for a long time having no clue sleep apnea is the cause of all their fatigue.

But just to give you an idea, here is a typical pattern of a person afflicted with sleep apnea:

*You fall asleep.

*Airways become blocked, from pressure on throat muscles or from a malfunction in the brain’s signals to keep your body breathing.

*After a few seconds, you jerk awake and fight to get air.

*Normal breathing resumes, and you fall back asleep.

*Minutes later, the cycle begins again.

Doesn’t it make sense that the constant disruption would make it impossible for you to ever get the deep, restful sleep you need?

Your Days Will Suffer, Too

As you might imagine, or might already know firsthand, sleep apnea will cast a dark shadow over your days as much as your nights.

That’s because you can’t let sleep deprivation pile on night after night after night without it significantly impacting your life after the sun comes up.

So along with restless nights, you might exhibit some of these telltale signs of this sleep condition:

*Waking up feeling tired

*Waking up with a sore throat

*Feeling exhausted all day

*Fighting to stay awake and alert behind the wheel

*Struggling to concentrate or stay on task

*Managing painful headaches

*Experiencing mood swings

*Forgetting things

This is no way to live! You should visit Dr. Tieken so he can set you up with an at-home sleep test to monitor your breathing patterns. The results will help him determine if you have sleep apnea and what sort of treatment best suits your needs.
