Snoring is Affecting My Relationship

If your partner has brought up their concern over your loud snoring, take the time to talk to a sleep expert. This could be a sign of chronic obstructive sleep apnea, which is a condition that affects many people on a nightly basis. The loud snoring that can come with obstructive sleep apnea can be quite concerning to loved ones, and it also puts your health at risk.

Has your partner had enough of your snoring? Speak with our team at Medina Dental Sleep Solutions about your options in treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Our team offers apnea treatment with a simple oral appliance, helping you to avoid the noise and intrusion of traditional CPAP machine therapy.
If Your Snoring Is Due To OSA, It Could Impact Your Health

During the deepest form of sleep, known as REM (rapid eye movement), we all relax. For some people, that results in softened throat tissue that partially or completely blocks the airway. Sleep apnea can cause symptoms such as loud and aggressive snoring, which can keep both you and your partner up at night.

OSA also poses serious risks to a person’s health. Studies have shown that people with untreated sleep apnea are at a significantly higher risk of heart attack and stroke, so it is important to talk to a professional if you notice signs and symptoms of this common sleep disorder. With sleep apnea, it’s about more than just feeling tired before noon, it’s about your health.

How Do I Know If I Have Sleep Apnea?

When your partner starts to bring up their worry about your loud and concerning snoring, then speak with a medical provider about your sleep. Chronic obstructive sleep apnea can increase your risk of serious health problems, so it is important to take it seriously. If you suspect that you have sleep apnea, our team can help you to understand more about your rest.

There are some signs that can help you to gauge the quality of sleep, however. Patients with OSA can see a variety of symptoms, including dry mouth or headaches in the morning. Those with sleep apnea can also experience daytime drowsiness due to a lack of uninterrupted sleep. For some, the recommendation of a trusted loved one is the reason that people seek treatment.
