Christine B. reviewed Michigan Center for TMJ and Sleep Wellness Feeling like a new person!
All throughout my 30’s I have been a walking zombie! Aside from dealing with TMJ pain I also was not sleeping well. I would average at least 7 to 8 hours a night and feel groggy and just out of it all day. I was dependent on drinking several cups of coffee, energy drinks in the afternoon and still never felt sharp. Even working out and eating healthy i still never felt 100%. All of my thyroid levels looked good and lab work always came back ok. It wasn’t until i came in for Treatment of my TMJ disorder that it was brought to my attention that I may have an underlying sleep breathing issue. Dr. Haddad and his team recommended me for a sleep study. When the results came back i was in shock that i actually had mild sleep apnea. Nikki and the Doctor explained in depth to me the affects of sleep apnea on the body. I didnt even know that Mild sleep apnea was twice as hard on the heart as smoking. I always thought that the only way to treat sleep apnea was a cpap machine which would never work for because i have claustrophobia issues. Dr. Haddad made me a Oral Sleep appliance to start treating it right away. I cant even begin to describe the change I noticed almost immediately. I have only had my Sleep Appliance for a week and I am a new person. I never once was a morning person, to be accurate i would hit my snooze button at least 12 times before i woke up driving my spouse crazy. Now, with the sleep appliance in i am waking up without an alarm, i feel amazing and sharp and ready to tackle my day. I’ve also been able to go to the gym in the morning and work out which i haven’t done in over 10 years because of no energy. this has been a game changer me, I only wish I would have taken it more serious sooner! Nikki is extremely knowledgeable about Sleep Apnea treatment and was so helpful throughout the whole process. Dr. Haddad and his team are amazing and have literally changed my life! I cant stress enough if you snore, or feel tired and groggy definitely contact them to get the sleep study, your body needs good sleep and you deserve to feel better!
