Sleep apnea is a serious disorder that affects your breathing during sleep. It’s a chronic problem that can get worse over time.
A person may stop breathing anywhere from a minimum of 10-30 seconds at a time, and can happen as many as 4-hundred times at night. Some people suffer so severely they are awakened every thirty seconds.
Sleep apnea is still greatly misunderstood by the medical community although research is ongoing. There are a great many individuals who are unaware that they even suffer from sleep apnea. Sometimes it takes a spouse, family member or close friend to bring the problem to light.
If left untreated, people face a serious risk of stoke. Untreated sufferers are also three times as likely to have heart disease. It is not a condition to be taken lightly.
