If so, you may be one of the millions of Americans that suffers from Sleep Apnea.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is the most common form of the condition, and is caused by obstruction to your airways while you sleep. While snoring is often a symptom of OSA, it’s not the only sign. Sleep Apnea can cause you to stop breathing for periods of time during the night, keeping your from getting the sleep you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle and a high quality of life.
Think about how you feel during the day. If you experience daytime sleepiness, chronic fatigue, morning headaches, irritability, impaired memory and judgment, and mood disturbances, you may have OSA.
