Why Sleep Apnea Is So Scary

Because loud, chronic snoring is one of the most common side effects of sleep apnea, it might seem like this condition is just an annoyance. But it’s so much more than that.

Sleep apnea is actually a condition where your airway becomes blocked while you sleep. You may or may not come out of a deep sleep enough to be aware that you can’t breathe, but typically your body’s natural survival instincts kick in and you resume a normal breathing pattern after several seconds. If you do wake up when this is going on, it can be incredibly frightening.

What’s worse is that these episodes repeat all night long. Consequently, you don’t get a deep, restful sleep and walk around day after day feeling completely exhausted.

When You’re Haunted By Sleep Apnea

Since many apnea sufferers aren’t fully awake during the repeated nightly episodes, you might feel the effects of this condition for a long time without knowing the source. Because untreated sleep apnea is so dangerous, it’s important to know what signs to look for so you can get the treatment you need.

You may experience several of these common sleep apnea symptoms:

*Daily fatigue

*Sore throat in the morning

*Loud snoring

*Problems with concentration and memory

*Mood swings and irritability

*Trouble staying alert at the wheel


*Weight gain

If you notice any of these signs, call Dr. Eccles right away so he can set you up with a sleep test. Your results will help us determine if sleep apnea is affecting you, and if so, find the solution that suits you best.

This time of year, you should be laughing in the face of fear, not gasping for air in a real life nightmare.

Sleep apnea is a chronic nightly cycle that puts your health at risk, which is scary enough. If you’re one of those who actually wakes up enough to realize what’s happening during an episode, it can be downright terrifying.
