Is it Snoring or Is It Sleep Apnea?

We all know that a little bit of snoring here and there is perfectly normal.  So how do you know when it’s snoring that you’re dealing with and when it’s sleep apnea?

Rest assured, we get this question all the time.   And the answer is that while a formal diagnosis has to be done by us here in the office, you may be able to get a better idea of which scenario you are dealing with simply by answering a few questions at home.

Here are some of the most commonly reported symptoms of sleep apnea.  Do you experience any (or several) of these?  If so, give us a quick call and we can schedule a consultation to diagnose (or rule out) and treat your condition.

While sleep apnea is a fairly common sleep disorder, it is an important one to tackle because it can cause damage to the organs over time.  Treatment options range from CPAP machines that give pressurized oxygen while you sleep to surgery.

If you think that you may have sleep apnea, please don’t hesitate to contact us for a consultation.
