3 Differences Between Snoring & Sleep Apnea

It can be easy with all the research about sleep apnea to believe you have a chronic disorder that could lead to losing your job, exhaustion or death. Get the facts because there is a difference between snoring and sleep apnea. The American Sleep Association reports, 90 million Americans suffer from snoring activity,” but almost half of that number are individuals whom suffer from just snoring. So what does Dr. Judith Strutz, a sleep dentist recommend? Read further to find out the difference between the two. 

The biggest difference between the two is the way you feel the ensuing morning. Individuals who suffer from sleep apnea will feel exhausted the subsequent day. When you wake up in the morning, if you just snore, you’ll feel refreshed and ready for the day. If you suffer from sleep apnea, your body wakes up several times throughout the night in order to get air. This will leave you feeling tired and unrested the next day. It is recommended you keep a sleep diary gathering more data on how you are feeling. 

Sleep apnea causes loud, regular snoring while snoring can be quiet and may not occur every evening. Sleep apnea occurs because your breathing is cut off for several seconds, and your body has to wake up in order to alert you to breath. 
 If you choke during the night, it may be a sign of sleep apnea. The choking and gasping are your body’s way of attempting to catch your breath. If you think, you have sleep apnea, contact Dr. Judith Strtuz & her team today for support.
