Living The Sleep Apnea Nightmare [BLOG]

Snoring Husband and an Annoyed Wife | Snoring and Sleep Apnea Solutions | Alluring Smiles in Mesa, AZ - Dr. Javier Portocarrero

If your October days and nights are being haunted by restlessness, fatigue, headaches, or in other ways that keep you from functioning at your best, then it’s probably not the Halloween season that’s affecting you.

It could mean you’re suffering from sleep apnea, a serious risk to your health in both the short and long term without treatment.

You can find solutions at Alluring Smiles in Mesa, AZ!

We’ll make sure you receive a thorough evaluation so we can determine if you could benefit from a custom oral appliance, an effective tool we make right here in our office to help you get the nightly rest you need!

What’s Keeping You Awake At Night?

When you have undiagnosed sleep apnea, it’s possible that you may have no idea that your nights are restless. You will feel the impact during the day, of course, but while you’re sleeping, there’s no guarantee you’ll have any memory of the repeated episodes of obstructive breathing whatsoever.

These episodes look a bit like this:

*You fall asleep.

*Your airways become constricted and you stop breathing.

*After several seconds of gasping for air, normal breathing resumes.

*You fall back asleep until the next episode begins.

This can happen either because your brain fails to sending the right messages to your breathing mechanisms or the muscles in your throat collapse under pressure. Both can be treated with help from our team in Mesa, AZ so you can breathe and sleep peacefully again.

Living The Sleep Apnea Nightmare

Anyone living with a sleep apnea sufferer is likely living the nightmare, too.

That’s because a very common symptom of this condition is chronic, loud snoring. And it’s not the kind of snoring that can be mitigated by gadgets or nose strips or different sleep positions.

Beyond that, the person experiencing sleep apnea firsthand will suffer from any number of other common symptoms, like:

*Daily fatigue

*Lapse in memory and concentration

*Trouble staying alert and awake at the wheel

*Frequent painful headaches

*Sore throats in the morning

*Feeling tired in the morning

*Increasing mood swings

Fighting these debilitating symptoms day after day can be miserable, and understandably so.

To make matters worse, the impact sleep apnea can have on your health ranges from depression, to heart disease, to hypertension, diabetes, stroke, and even death.

That’s why professional intervention is a must.

End The Nightmare!

The point here is not to frighten you. Rather, we want to extend our support if you’ve been living the sleep apnea nightmare.

When you visit Alluring Smiles, you’ll find a skilled, caring team of highly-trained professionals all dedicated to getting to the bottom of your nightly sleep disruptions so we can determine the most suitable, effective solutions.
