Q : I don’t have sleep apnea, I just snore loudly.
The fact is, that unless you have a sleep study there is no knowing if you actually stop breathing in the night. Sleep tests are administered in a sleep center, or can also be Home test units which are dispensed at a sleep center. If it turns out that there is no apnea, an oral device is the ideal treatment for to help you stop snoring.
Q: I had a sleep test a long time ago, and it showed I have apnea but I didn’t do anything about it. Can I do something now?
Chances are that the sleep apnea is still present, especially if you still have the typical symptoms of fatigue and morning grogginess. And yes, you can and should do something now!
Q: I have been told I have sleep apnea but I am not tired at all! And though my wife says I snore, I don’t believe it.
If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and don’t feel tired, that means your body is compensating for the lack of sleep and lack of air by working extra hard to give you the oxygen you need. Because of the increased load on the body, sleep apnea is considered the silent killer as it is associated with many serious disorders such as heart disease, hypertension, stroke, diabetes and many others.
