Sleep Apnea Chicago, IL
Getting a good night’s sleep is important. It gives your body the time it needs to rest and repair itself. When you don’t sleep well, you feel groggy. It may be difficult to concentrate, and you may find yourself more irritable than normal. Usually, getting a good night’s sleep the next night helps to restore normalcy, and allow you to feel more yourself. For millions of Americans, getting this much-needed rest seems almost impossible. When you consistently wake up day after day feeling completely exhausted, no matter what time you go to bed the night before, it can take a toll, affecting your mental, emotional, and physical health. If this is happening to you, you may be living with a condition called sleep apnea. Medhat Dental Excellence is here to help.

One of the biggest problems is that you don’t even know that you’re waking up, which can make feeling exhausted in the morning so much more confusing.
