Do you wake up feeling tired and groggy even if you’ve had proper night’s sleep? Do you have headaches in the morning? Are you unable to concentrate on tasks? Have you been told by your sleep partner that you snore loudly or that your breathing stops in your sleep? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions, there’s a chance you’re suffering from obstructive sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is a common condition affecting up to 31% of men and 21% of women in the United States. While those numbers are fairly large, it’s widely understood that the actual number is likely much higher because most cases of sleep apnea remain undiagnosed. If left untreated, obstructive sleep apnea may increase your risk of heart disease, depression, stroke, and other serious medical problems.
At Tower Sleep Medicine, we offer both home and sleep-laboratory based testing to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea. If you have sleep apnea our team of physicians and sleep technologists will coordinate your care and help you treat your obstructive sleep apnea in Los Angeles.
