DEAR SLEEP DOCTORS

This week our listener email is from Tom in Bowling Green, KY who writes:

I have been diagnosed with a deviated septum that is 90% plus blockage on
one side. I wonder if this has an impact on me not getting a deep sleep….I
never dream or wake up tired….I do work a lot. I wonder if it would be
better to have the surgery done and then do a sleep study.

Sincerely, Tom


Tune in as we answer Tom’s question and give him some helpful advice.
