When Is the Right Time to See a Doctor?
Some people are able to correct OSA on their own, perhaps by losing weight or changing their sleeping position. However, you should not rely solely on self-care if you suspect that you have OSA. Symptoms such as loud snoring, frequently waking up with a sore throat, and constantly feeling tired are all major red flags that indicate a visit to a doctor is in order.
Your doctor may recommend that you undergo a sleep test, which will reveal whether you have OSA and how severe the condition is. From there, you can begin to explore your treatment options. Many patients find that an oral sleep appliance from Ocotillo Sleep Solutions is a convenient and effective way to combat OSA.
