Real People, Real Stories of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
In this video, Roger talks about his own experience with sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment, as well as giving a lot of really great information from a patient perspective. Around the six-minute mark, he really dives into how he felt when he was dealing with untreated sleep apnea–choking in his sleep, waking up with headaches, decreased job performance and chronic exhaustion. One of the most alarming things he mentions is multiple occasions where he fell asleep at the wheel. Untreated sleep apnea isn’t just dangerous for the patient, it’s very dangerous for those around them on the road.
Roger admits that he put off getting tested for years, despite falling asleep at the wheel and his increasing health problems. Roger isn’t alone in this. 80% of people with sleep apnea are undiagnosed, despite symptoms and signs that they are living with every, single day.
