Myth #1: Sleep Apnea Only Affects Men

While it is true that men are more often diagnosed with sleep apnea, women experience symptoms as well. In fact, more women are diagnosed with sleep apnea after menopause. However, women seem to experience differing symptoms from men, including insomnia and increased fatigue. It’s recommended that women see a sleep specialist if they’re experiencing an increase in these types of symptoms, as they may be suffering from sleep apnea and be completely unaware.

Myth #2: Only Overweight People Suffer from Sleep Apnea

There are many factors that may lead someone to suffering from sleep apnea. People who are overweight or obese may be diagnosed with sleep apnea, but there are also plenty of people of average weight that experience this issue as well. Several contributing factors (such as genetics, muscle deterioration or esophageal obstruction) also lead to sleep apnea, and these factors can be present in people of all shapes and sizes.

Myth #3: All CPAP Machines and Masks are Loud and Uncomfortable

Treating sleep apnea has never been easier. Those who have been recently diagnosed may not understand their options when it comes to treatment, and may be under the impression that CPAP machines are loud while the masks themselves are bulky and uncomfortable. In reality, CPAP technology has evolved to be lighter, quieter and more comfortable, no matter how you prefer to sleep or how severe your sleep apnea is. 

There are many options from many companies that make treating this sleep disorder a snap. In fact, it’s highly recommended that those suffering from sleep apnea explore their multitude of options and never settle for uncomfortable sleep. CPAP machines and masks are there to improve your sleep quality.

Myth #4: Sleep Apnea Can Go Away without Treatment

Unfortunately, if you suffer from sleep apnea, this is not an issue that will go away on its own. Since there can be several contributing factors to the cause of sleep apnea, continuing to go without treatment can cause more serious health problems down the road. Taking the issue seriously and starting effective treatment will not only improve your quality of sleep, it can also help prevent high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack and even an increased risk of cancer. It’s very important to find a treatment that’s right for you, so you can live a healthier life.

Myth #5: Sleep Apnea can only be Diagnosed in a Sleep Study & Treatment is Expensive

It is true that sleep apnea can be discovered and diagnosed from participating in a sleep study, but this is not a requirement for accurately determining if someone has the disorder. Participants often enter these sleep studies to help improve their sleep quality- and an accurate diagnosis allows them to begin treatment quickly. However, if you’re experiencing any of the symptoms of sleep apnea, seeing your doctor or a sleep specialist can also put you on the road to better sleep.

Another component of this is the worry that sleep apnea treatment is expensive. There are more options than ever for people from all walks of life when it comes to treating sleep apnea. From CPAP subscription services that replace tubing and masks for a fee to options that allow for purchasing as-needed at affordable prices, treating your sleep apnea is affordable and highly recommended. 

These common sleep apnea myths often prevent those who may be suffering from seeking the treatment that can help them live better, healthier lives. If you’re suffering from symptoms of sleep apnea, talk with your doctor about a potential diagnosis and don’t let the myths scare you away from effective treatment.
