How to Spot Sleep Apnea
Do you find yourself feeling fatigued and irritable in the morning? Do your loved ones complain of your loud, continuous snoring? If either of these sound familiar, you may be suffering from a common sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Sleep apnea is a condition that occurs when muscles in the back of the throat become relaxed while sleeping. This causes a blockage in the airway and prevents you from breathing properly. As a result, your brain sends a signal to your body to wake up and gasp for air.
