Do I Have A Sleep Disorder?

Why can't I sleep?

GOOD SLEEP IS CRUCIAL TO YOUR HEALTH

One of the best ways to ensure that you are healthy is your ability to get a good night’s sleep. Most people need an average of six to eight hours of sleep to function without being overly tired. Some people may get the required amount of sleep but still feel tired during the day. If you are finding that you are drowsy during the day even if you are sleeping through the night, you may suffer from sleep apnea.

SYMPTOMS
• Heavy snoring
• You find it harder to sleep when you have head colds
• Weight gain
• Mood swings
• Morning headaches
• You gasp or stop breathing when you sleep
• You occasionally fall asleep during the day when you are active
• If you have two or more of the above symptoms, you may have sleep apnea

DIAGNOSIS / SLEEP TEST

If you suspect you suffer from sleep apnea, you should visit your doctor. Your doctor will have you complete either a sleep questionnaire or a sleep study to see if you have sleep apnea. If you do suffer from it, your doctor will most likely ask you to wear a CPAP machine, these allow you to get continuous air (oxygen) flow through the mask.

Statistics show that 75 percent of the people who prescribe CPAP machines are not compliant after 21 days. In this case you may seek alternative treatment by going to a dentist who specializes in treating sleep apnea such as Noblesville dentist Dr. Mike Deldar.

TIRED? SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT

Treatments for sleep apnea vary depending on the cause and the severity of your condition. Sometimes doing something as simple as losing weight or sleeping on your side can treat sleep apnea. If your sleep apnea is more severe, then you may need to use CPAP therapy.

CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. It is therapy provided through a nasal mask that opens the patient’s airway so that uninterrupted breathing can occur during sleep. This allows you to breathe freely while you are sleeping so that you maintain a restful sleep throughout the night.
