“Why am I so tired?” If you find yourself commonly asking this question, there may be a problem. Many patients suffering from sleep disorders go years without realizing it. Some patients have been diagnosed and getting treatment but are frustrated because they are still waking up tired. If either of these sounds like you, read on.
Rule Out the Basics
When you frequently wake up tired, it’s time to do some detective work. Rule out the basics with the following suggestions:
- Reduce or eliminate caffeine and alcohol
- Reduce screen time and blue light exposure
- Replace mattress if old, worn, or uncomfortable
- Reduce stress or anxiety with relaxation techniques
If you try these changes, yet still consistently wake up tired, talk to your doctor. You may be suffering from a sleep disorder. This is particularly true if you notice other symptoms, such as loud and disruptive snoring, gasping for air while asleep, or waking with headaches.
In fact, you may be one of the millions in this country diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea and treated with traditional CPAP therapy.
Getting Treatment but No Relief? Sleep Medicine Therapies Offers an Alternative
If you have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea but still waking up tired despite using a CPAP, you are not alone. Many patients cannot tolerate or do not get relief with their CPAP. The good news? Sleep Medicine Therapies in Youngstown, Ohio offers an alternative that provides many patients relief, without the use of CPAP.
