Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome: More Common Than You Think
I recently saw a 50-year-old woman who complained of many years of intense fatigue, poor quality sleep, and an inability to focus and concentrate during the day. Of note, she underwent multiple dental extractions when she was younger while undergoing orthodontics. She tried hormonal replacement therapy, but did not find this helpful. During sleep, she wakes up quite frequently, and never feels like she gets refreshing deep sleep. She also has cold hands and low blood pressure. She sometimes snores.
