Do you wake up feeling tired and groggy even if you’ve had proper 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 way too much? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions, there’s a strong 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 increases your risk of heart attack, depression, stroke, etc.
At Tower Sleep Medicine, we perform a series of advanced tests to diagnose and eventually treat obstructive sleep apnea in Los Angeles.
