Sleep apnoea causes your breathing to intermittently stop during sleep, and is a medical condition that affects your overall health. Symptoms? You will snore loudly, wake up gasping for air, have morning headaches and daytime fatigue.
Many people never suspect that sleep apnoea could be the cause of their sleep problem.
The first step is getting a referral from your dentist, as there may be a retainer-like device that they can provide to help keep airways open. If that doesn’t help your sleep apnoea, they'll put you in touch with a sleep specialist.
