Waking up feeling tired?

Posted .

Many people are aroused from sleep hundreds of times during the night due to sleep apnea (disruptive breathing) and are completely unaware of this in the morning. You have to be awake for 6 seconds before you realize and have memory that you were actually awake. Research presented at the 52nd annual meeting in June of the American Headache Society suggests that sleep deprivation changes protein levels in the body that are known to initiate and sustain pain. These same proteins are thought to be a critical part of the migraine headache condition. And, naturally, if you are waking up many times a night, you aren’t getting the rest you need.Zzzz Talk to your doctor about referring you to a sleep clinic for a sleep study if you think you may have sleep problems.
