What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a serious sleeping disorder that causes you to stop breathing temporarily during the night, commonly because of the way your throat muscles relax while you’re asleep. This can happen five times an hour, or even a hundred times during a full night of sleep (or lack thereof). As a result, you may be unfocused during the day, agitated, irritable, or likely to fall asleep when doing mundane activities like watching TV or reading.
What Are the Symptoms of Sleep Apnea?
Since this condition happens while you’re sleeping, you may not even be aware that you suffer from it. If you find that during the night you snore heavily, wake up with a choking sensation, or experience heartburn, then you may indeed be dealing with sleep apnea. Another common symptom of sleep apnea is if you wake after a full night’s sleep, but still feel unrefreshed.
Why Is Sleep Apnea Dangerous?
People suffering from untreated sleep apnea have been injured in car accidents and other mishaps because of their chronic exhaustion. Others experience a significant decline in their health, as the chronic oxygen deprivation caused by sleep apnea has been shown to increase blood pressure and raise the chances of a heart attack.

Although sleep apnea is a serious condition, the treatments available for it are relatively easy to incorporate into your nighttime routine.
