When you hear that your loud snoring or other concerns may be signs that you need sleep apnea treatment, do you act quickly? Or, do you assume you have the luxury of procrastinating and getting around to scheduling a visit with us when you have some extra time? From our professional perspective, we always urge patients who are struggling with nightly rest interruption and/or daily exhaustion to meet with us right away. Curious why we feel so passionate about immediate treatment? Give us a moment to offer a few reasons.
Reason #1: So You Can Sleep Comfortably
If you’re not getting enough sleep at night, you will quickly begin to notice. While you may not remember waking up, you will certainly feel the effects, which can range in intensity in how strongly they impact your day. Some patients experience headaches and sore throats in the morning. Most will deal with fatigue that continues to worsen. Many will experience problems with concentrating and will find that they feel the need to fall asleep in the middle of the day.
Reason #2: To Avoid Hurting Your Relationships
A common reason we suggest you schedule time to learn whether you need sleep apnea treatment is that you can hurt your relationships if you avoid care. This includes, of course, your relationship with a significant other. However, it also extends to any relationship in your life, from work relationships to those with friends and family. The moodier and more distracted you become, the more difficult it will be to act like yourself and continue to nurture the connections with those you care about.
Reason #3: To Avoid Serious Problems with Your Health
Did you know that avoiding sleep apnea treatment can take a serious toll on your health? You may not experience problems immediately. However, over time, your sleep apnea may encourage the development of problems with your heart health, hypertension, and more.
