Sleep Apnea Is A Immense and Frequently Under Diagnosed Dilemma

The other day I was hanging out with my girlfriend, and we were waiting for something or other. I’m not exactly sure, as it was one of those things that she just kind of dragged me along to. One of those things that you can’t really get out of.

The problem was when I started falling asleep while the lady was giving the beginning instructions. No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t keep my eyes opened. Which seemed strange because I went to bed the same time as always the night before, and woke up the same time on that day.

When she was a kid, her dad would snore incredibly loud, keeping the whole family up the entire night. Finally when they convinced him he’d had a problem, he went to the doctor to get it checked out. Turned out he had sleep apnea, which is when you stop breathing while you are sleeping. This is dangerous.

Some of the common symptoms are waking up several times during the night for no reason, excessive snoring, headaches during the day, and feeling tired when you are bored. If you get enough sleep, when you are bored, you should just be bored, and not tired. This is why my girlfriend was worried.

Now my girlfriend doesn’t know if I snore or not, but she was kind of worried since I was so sleepy during the day. She also noted that other times I felt tired when I shouldn’t have. Like the other night when I fell asleep during the romance comedy we were watching.

So our next stop was the doctor. He said that it was too early to tell without more information. He told me to keep a sleep journal, and record everything whenever I wake up, and to collect as much information regarding possible symptoms as possible. That way it will be much easier for him to suggest a treatment.
