Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disruption that stops people from breathing at night and thus prevents a restful night of sleep. It is a condition much more serious than chronic fatigue and daytime sleepiness--sleep apnea can actually kill.
How many of you are aware of what you do when you sleep? Do your partners tell you that you snore or stop breathing? Snoring and sleep apnea are types of sleep disturbances that prevent a sufficient amount of oxygen to the brain and can result in chronic fatigue, depression, irritability, and daytime sleepiness.
