Real People, Real Stories of Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Monica
Monica worried about her sleep apnea symptoms, not just because she was miserably exhausted all of the time, but because she knew if she didn’t take action to diagnose and treat the problem, it would quickly begin to effect those around her as well. Unfortunately, her first attempt to fix the problem led to misdiagnosis and an unnecessary surgery that did not address the true, underlying problem: obstructive sleep apnea. Thankfully, she eventually connected with a provider who recognized her symptoms and set her up with treatment for OSA. Her very first night with treatment, she got to experience the quality sleep she’d been missing and quickly regained her energy and wellbeing. Monica’s story is a common one. Sleep apnea is often misdiagnosed, especially in women, or the symptoms go ignored for year after year. Don’t suffer unnecessarily!
