You’ve just settled in for a good night’s sleep when… ugh! Your husband starts his nightly snoring concert. Snoring can certainly be a inconvenience for you and your loved ones. But did you know that consistent, loud snoring can be a symptom of a serious problem?
Sleep apnea is a serious condition. It is caused when the soft tissue at the back of the throat relaxes during sleep, blocking the airways and cutting off the oxygen supply to the brain. This can lead to various symptoms such as snoring, daytime fatigue, insomnia or waking up with a dry, sore throat. If not treated, sleep apnea can lead to grave health concerns such as:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- and more!
