Sleep Apnea

Did you know that sleep apnea is one of the leading causes of daytime sleepiness? A lot of people snore, but only some of them suffer from sleep apnea. It is a serious medical condition in which the patient literally stops breathing for up to 10 seconds (or longer), and it usually affects those who are overweight and/or who suffer from snoring. Further, those who suffer from daytime sleepiness may not know they are affected by it, so it never gets treated.

Sleep apnea is a serious problem which needs to be treated by a doctor, but you can stop snoring by using any of a number of over-the-counter remedies, none of which require a prescription or doctor's visit. As silly as it may sound, those who suffer from snoring, or those who live with someone who does, know how disruptive it can be to everyone's sleep. And we all know how much lack of sleep affects our daily performance at work, school, and just in general.
