Sleep Apnea Treatment for Headache Relief
One of the top causes of frequent headaches or migraines, especially first thing in the morning is sleep apnea. Sleep apnea causes headaches and migraines because your oxygen levels drop repeatedly throughout the night. When oxygen drops, the carbon dioxide goes up which causes the blood vessels around your brain to dilate. The dilation is what causes the pain we identify as headaches and migraines.
When you use a sleep apnea treatment at night, your oxygen levels will no longer drop which means your blood vessels won’t become dilated. At Advanced Dental Sleep Treatment Center in Omaha, we can coordinate a diagnostic sleep test to help you get diagnosed with sleep apnea and provide you with a treatment that will help put your morning headaches and migraines to an end. If you suffer from frequent headaches, loud snoring, choking or coughing at night, and feel tired throughout the day, you might have sleep apnea.
