Help for Those With Sleep Apnea

It is estimated that over 70 million Americans suffer from some sort of sleep related condition. These include insomnia, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, and narcolepsy.

Sleep apnea is a medical condition, which can identified by some of the following symptoms: snoring, interruption of your breathing, morning headaches, waking-up with a dry mouth and sore throat, and excessive sleepiness. Obviously, you will need someone to tell you if you have one of the first two symptoms, but if you do feel tired much of the time, even after a full nights’ sleep or wake-up with headaches, it would be worth investigating whether or not you have this condition. Although, we do not hear much about sleep apnea, it is a serious condition and if not treated, it can eventually lead to a series of health-related problems including hypertension and irregular heartbeats.

If you have these symptoms or suffer from one of the other sleep related conditions, there is help for you. Many people suffer some sort of sleep aliment, but they do not know where to go for help. Now, there is a resource called Sleep Disorders Guide, which is a nationwide index of all the medical centers and doctors that can cure sleep apnea. To find a center, just type in your zip code and a list of sleep disorder treatment centers will appear. While on the site, you will also discover that it has an extensive index of sleep disorders covering such problems as bed wetting, night terrors, jet lag, and more. You will find valuable information on symptoms, causes, and possible solutions. Sleep Disorders Guide offers the information and resources you need, to help you get on the road to that good night's sleep.
