Do you snore at night? If you have a bed partner, you very likely know the answer to that question already. Snoring can be a concern of its own, or it may be one of several possible symptoms related to the condition known as obstructive sleep apnea. Either way, we at the office of Dr. Ghatan has solutions for it, so that you will be able to cease snoring. You won’t have to feel self-conscious and you won’t be causing problems or disrupted sleep for your significant other thanks to our Brooklyn snoring treatment.
Sleep apnea is more serious than snoring all by itself. It occurs when your breathing becomes obstructed, either partially or completely, as you are sleeping. This shallow breathing or stoppage of it may occur many times in one sleep cycle; perhaps up to hundreds of times. The results often have a debilitating effect on your overall health, and can even lead to heart problems. What are the most common symptoms, other than snoring, that are typically linked to sleep apnea? feeling tired during the day, even after having had a full night’s sleep, night sweats, difficulties getting up in the morning, headaches in the morning, dry mouth or sore throat upon waking, sexual dysfunction, and waking in the middle of the night feeling as if you are suddenly choking or gasping. If your problem is only snoring and you have no other indications of sleep apnea, you can take advantage of our Brooklyn snoring treatment right away. If there is a possibility of sleep apnea, however, you should participate in an overnight sleep study, which will yield a definitive result.
