The moment someone suggests that you may be suffering from a sleep disorder like sleep apnea, you may immediately respond with, “But I’m too…” The end of that sentence may include one of a variety of reasons that you simply think you could not possibly be dealing with a sleep problem. Unfortunately, the longer you convince yourself of such notions, the longer you might be leaving a serious issue brewing and negatively affecting your overall health! Let’s talk facts, so you recognize it just might be time to come see us for a consultation and care.
You’re Not Too Young
Even kids can deal with obstructive sleep apnea. While you may have an age in your head that you associate with snoring and sleeping problems, remember that they can happen to anyone.
You’re Not Too Healthy
Even if you’re the perfect specimen of health, you can still end up dealing with sleep apnea. Something is causing your throat tissues to collapse and obstruct your breathing! So, don’t fool yourself into thinking you don’t need any help because you eat well and work out. These are wonderful things and can support solid sleep but you may still require treatment.
You’re Not Too Heavy A Sleeper
You might not remember any of the instances during which you woke up throughout the night (which is part of what happens with sleep apnea). You may insist that you’ve always been a heavy sleeper and that since you remember nothing regarding snoring, choking, etc., that this could not possibly be something affecting you. However, even if you’ve long been a heavy sleeper and even if you aren’t aware of the nightly events, it may still be impacting you.
