Many people make the mistake in believing that continued tiredness for months on end is just a fact of life and nothing can be done about it. This is false. Sleep apnea is part of life for various people, and education about the condition is pertinent.

There are some bad habits that should be stopped because they make sleep apnea worse. Few things are worse for sleep apnea than drinking and smoking. Drinking relaxes your airway to prevent proper breathing. Smoking can create carcinogens inside of your lungs, which can damage them later on. If you can give up these bad habits, you’ll see a significant reduction in your sleep apnea symptoms.

If your narrow airways are causing sleep apnea, get a mouth guard designed for sleeping. These devices correct your airways and they help you breathe properly. Get fitted for a mouth guard by your doctor if need be.

Do you smoke and/or drink? If you suffer from sleep apnea, quit smoking and cut down on your alcohol consumption. They can do bad things to your airways. Alcohol can relax airways while smoking can cause them to swell, both of which can cause you to have sleep apnea. If you find that you just can’t give these bad habits up, do what you can to not do either of them within four hours of your bedtime.

Sleep in a prone position. Sleeping on your back is attributed to a lot of people who suffer with sleep apnea. When you sleep on your back, you are warping the shape of your airways. Sleeping on one’s side is a better option. A large body pillow can help keep you from rolling to your back in the middle of the night.

Since you are more aware of sleep apnea, you can keep an eye out for it. Don’t let anyone sway you from speaking to your doctor concerning sleep apnea.
