Sleep Apnea

Posted: Updated:

If you have trouble sleeping soundly through the night and find yourself exhausted throughout the day, you could be suffering from sleep apnea. If you snore, have been told you stop breathing at night, or if you have a significant medical condition such as hypertension you may be at even greater risk for sleep apnea. This condition can cause high blood pressure, irregular heart rate, fatigue, and even weight gain. A restful sleep is important for your health so contact your doctor for more information if you think you might be suffering from sleep apnea.
