Does Feeling Sleepy Mean I Have A Sleep Disorder?

Posted On October 6, 2013

Do you feel tired, groggy or consistently exhausted throughout the day? You may be experiencing a condition called excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS). EDS is a major sign of sleep deprivation and could be occurring as the result of a far more serious issue such as obstructive sleep apnea. EDS and sleep deprivation are only two of the many serious side effects of sleep apnea and should not be taken lightly.

In order to cure your sleep deprivation and EDS it is important to seek medical attention immediately. If you feel extreme sleepiness after eating or at random intervals throughout the day you may be one of the millions of people who suffer from undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea. Many physicians may prescribe you prescription medication or sleeping aids that have their own potentially detrimental side effects. These treatment options will only pacify your problem. If you are suffering from a serious sleep disorder, like obstructive sleep apnea, a proper evaluation including a sleep study is necessary.

Fortunately, Sleep Apnea Treatment Centers of America offers a sleep study to assess the root cause of your symptoms and diagnose the source of your sleep deprivation. Around 80 percent of obstructive sleep apnea cases are undiagnosed, and this lack of awareness is causing sufferers to develop other health issues. Obstructive sleep apnea has been linked to high blood pressure, obesity, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, diabetes, ADHD, and many more dangerous health concerns. In order to protect from these risk factors and the other serious side effects of lack of sleep, contact us today!
