sleep apnea symptoms - Fresno dentistSleep apnea is a serious condition – we tend to think of sleep apnea in terms of snoring, but the long-term health effects of sleep apnea can be serious. And if left untreated, the condition can even prove fatal. That's why it's so important for Fresno-area patients like you who are suffering from sleep apnea to seek treatment as soon as possible.

Of course, before seeking treatment you need to know you have a problem. And that's not always easy when it comes to sleep apnea. That's why we've compiled a brief list of symptoms associated with the condition.

Call Dr. Miyake for an examination if you have the following sleep apnea symptoms:

  • Chronic snoring
  • Fatigue, especially in the morning
  • Headaches
  • Abrupt awakenings during the night
  • Sudden episodes of breathing cessation during sleep
  • Irritability

One of the reasons sleep apnea is difficult to diagnose is that many of the symptoms described above can be dismissed or ignored. Not every poor night's sleep is caused by sleep apnea, nor is every episode of snoring. And, of course, it's difficult for many people to be aware of things that happen while they sleep.

But if you find yourself dealing with multiple items from the list above, you might well have sleep apnea, and getting a firm diagnosis as soon as possible is absolutely vital. Dr. Miyake can help you determine if you're suffering from sleep apnea, then work with you to find a solution that restores you to restful sleep.

If you live in or around Fresno, California and you think you may suffer from sleep apnea, please call Dr. Gregory G. Miyake, DDS today at 559-224-0103 for a consultation and examination.
