Sleep Apnea Treatment

Are you always tired and not sure why? Do people say you snore loudly, and often? You may suffer from sleep disorder. Dr. Brar in South Elgin, IL can help you navigate your symptoms and get the sleep apnea treatment you need.

Sleep apnea: the whole body health issue

Sleep apnea, a common but dangerous sleeping disorder, has two types. The first type is central sleep apnea, experienced when the area of your brain that controls breathing stops sending the breathing messages while you sleep. This causes you to briefly jerk awake and interrupt whatever level of sleep you may have achieved. The other form is obstructive sleep apnea. While you are sleeping, your airway becomes physically blocked. This stops your breathing and causes you to jerk awake briefly before falling right back to sleep. Blockages can happen several times per night and rob you of the restful sleep you need.

What causes sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea can affect anyone of any age or gender. There are some risk factors, however, that make it more likely that you will develop sleep apnea. Being overweight is one of the risk factors that contributes to a heightened risk of sleep apnea. Having a large neck and being over the age of 40 are other common risk factors that you need to be aware of.

The most recognizable symptom is loud, chronic snoring. You may also find yourself with a sore throat or dry throat when you wake up. Irritability and daytime exhaustion are other symptoms you should be on the lookout for.

Achieve better sleep

Dr. Brar will do an exam, review your medical history, ask questions about your sleep habits, and perform a Mallampati test to measure the size of your airway. He will work with a sleep doctor to help identify whether you are suffering from a form of sleep disorder. After you have been diagnosed, we will develop a plan to help you navigate your disorder and mitigate the sleep apnea symptoms.
