If you don't fit the typical profile of someone with obstructive sleep apnea (MOOSE: male, older, overweight,  snoring, excessive sleepiness), most doctors won't ever think that you may have obstructive sleep apnea. I see dozens of of patients every month who are told they don't have sleep apnea but were found to have moderate to severe sleep apnea after undergoing sleep studies. So if you're not a MOOSE, what are some other ways to tell if you may have sleep apnea?

In this podcast episode, Kathy and I discuss 7 Unusual Signs & Symptoms of Sleep Apnea. 

  1. Tongue Scalloping
  2. Nocturia (nighttime urination)
  3. Headaches
  4. ADHD
  5. PTSD
  6. Sexual dysfunction
  7. IBS or GI problems

If you tuned in to our last episode,  I talked about the 7 reasons why oral appliances may be a good option for those of you with obstructive sleep apnea, and in today’s episode, we’re going to talk about the 8 reason why you may not want to consider oral appliances for sleep apnea.

  1. It’s challenging to find a qualified dentist for every patient

  2. It can change your bite

  3. It’s much more expensive than CPAP

  4. It can be lost or damaged

  5. If you have severe sleep apnea

  6. If you're severely overweight

  7. If your nose is stuffy

  8. Sometimes, the tongue may not move forward with jaw movement.

Plus two more bonus reasons.
