What Is Sleep Apnea?
Learn about the symptoms that could impact your daily life.
Sleep apnea is a serious condition that stops you from breathing for short periods of time while asleep.
If you snore loudly or make choking noises while you sleep, it could be a sign the soft tissue in the back of your throat is collapsing. As these muscles relax during the night, it can block your airway, making it harder to breathe and causing you to snore.
Sleep apnea may also make you wake up frequently, affecting the quality of your sleep and negatively impacting your health.
Here are the typical symptoms of sleep apnea:
Excessive daytime sleepiness or fatigue
Difficulty with concentration or memory
Waking during the night and feeling short of breath
If left untreated, sleep apnea can cause serious health consequences and severely impact your daily life. These include heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and depression.
