When You Only Know You’re Very Tired

Let’s say you stumbled upon our Livonia, MI team as you looked around online, trying to figure out why you’re so sleepy. You know that you’ve been fatigued but you never really considered a sleep disorder before because, well, you don’t even know anything about them. Also, you don’t remember waking up throughout the night, so it never occurred to you. However, upon closer inspection, you realize that maybe this is an avenue worth considering. What to do, you think? Should you call us and come in or will you realize it was a wasted effort? We can assist you in making the final decision in regard to whether you should call!

Check Out Other Symptoms

We encourage you to begin by asking yourself whether you’re experiencing any other symptoms. If you look through sleep disorder symptoms we mention on our site that are associated with issues like sleep apnea, you will quickly either relate to them or think to yourself, “Hmm, maybe my issue is something else.” For instance, individuals dealing with severe snoring or sleep apnea may experience problems like:

  • You wake up in the morning with a sore throat and/or a very dry mouth
  • You notice that you have morning headaches that may linger throughout the day
  • You feel quite moody on a regular basis
  • Your ability to concentrate is becoming worse
  • You’re dealing with new health issues, such as high blood pressure

Ask Around

If there’s anyone who witnesses any part of your sleeping, whether it’s a significant other, a roommate or child who could possibly hear you making snoring or choking noises from the other room, etc., then go ahead and ask some questions. Find out if you are making sounds similar to those just mentioned. If so, this is a good sign you may be dealing with a sleep disorder.
