Obstructive sleep apnea Is a common and serious sleep disorder that causes you to stop breathing during sleep.
The airway repeatedly becomes blocked, limiting the amount of air that reaches our lungs. When this happens, you may snore loudly or making choking noises as you try to breathe. Your brain and body becomes oxygen deprived and you may wake up. This may happen a few times a night , or in more severe cases, several hundred times a night.
Sleep apnea can make you wake up in the morning feeling tired or unrefreshed even though you have had a full night of sleep. During the day, you may feel fatigued, have difficulty concentrating or you may even unintentionally fall asleep. This is because your body is waking up numerous times through the night, even though you might not be conscious of each awakening.
