Management Of Panic Attacks After Experiencing Sleep Apnea?
Sok before I ever consulted if the breath stopped suddenly it was apnea, now the question is now, because “I sleep apnea so that I get panic attacks since I often stop breathing. I have to go to a psychiatrist, tht, or my neurologist so confused, thanks
Hello Aldira, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Apnea is defined as a condition when a person experiences stopping breathing where this condition often occurs suddenly.
In a sleep apnea, stopping breathing can occur due to airway obstruction or interference with the delivery of signals between the brain and respiratory muscles that occur during sleep, causing the body to experience oxygen deprivation for several times, so it is quite natural when you wake up suddenly after the apnea phase occurs, the body will feel like it has experienced a panic attack, and this arises because of the compensation made by the body to maintain adequate oxygen supply for the vital organs of the body.
Because your current complaint is due to the sleep apnea that you are suffering from, it is highly recommended to check your complaint further to a pulmonary specialist to get more appropriate therapy.
At this time, there are no medicines recommended for you to take, but you can try to change your sleeping position, avoid consuming alcoholic beverages, avoid smoking, and maintain your ideal weight.
I hope this helps.
