Sleep Apnea is a condition that disturbs your sleep resulting in unhealthy side effects. Many people are not aware of the problem. You may be experiencing various symptoms without knowing the cause.

This is an obstruction to proper breathing. You suffer from unnaturally low levels of oxygen flowing to your lungs. It is caused when your soft palate sags and tongue slides back blocking the flow of air. Obstructed air flow creates the natural tendency to gasp for air. The result is snoring and frequently waking up. If you are tired during the day, this may be the reason why.

This condition is a result of your brain sending an incorrect message to muscles preventing a natural breathing pattern.

Regardless of the cause, it is important to your health to be aware of the symptoms.

Ask yourself these common questions:

  1. When a passenger in a car for an hour, do you frequently doze off?
  2. Sitting in a meeting or talking with someone, do you struggle to stay awake?
  3. How often do you need naps in the afternoon?
  4. Do you need to sleep or do you doze right after lunch?
  5. Do you snore loudly?
  6. Do you gasp or stop breathing while asleep
