What Is Sleep Apnea?
This disorder comes in a few different types, the most common of which is called obstructive sleep apnea. It occurs when your airway becomes blocked by the tissues in the back of your throat collapsing. Not only can this cause seriously loud snoring, but it also forces you to briefly wake up so that the obstruction can be dislodged, letting you breathe again. These episodes can occur dozens or even hundreds of times a night, but because they’re so short, many people don’t even remember them. They simply wake up feeling exhausted without knowing why.
Dangers of Sleep Apnea
Untreated sleep apnea does much more than make you feel fatigued. By depriving your body of reaching the deeper stages of sleep, it may also cause problems with memory, focus, and reaction time, which could be disastrous if you have to drive. In terms of your overall health, sleep apnea has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and pregnancy complications such as preterm births.
