Sleep Apnea and Social Security Disability


Many of our Social Security Disability clients suffer from sleep apnea. Individuals suffering from this disorder frequently experience:

excessive daytime sleepiness (e.g., falling asleep easily and inappropriately),

memory problems, and

frequent awakenings during the night, often with snoring.

The course of prescribed treatment can include positional therapy (e.g., not sleeping on the back), oral or dental appliances that keep the airway open, weight loss, surgery, and use of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device.
