Do you snore? Does the person sleeping one pillow over snore? If so, did you know that snoring can be a symptom of an even bigger problem? Obstructive sleep apnea could be the cause of your snoring. This disorder is characterized by disruptions in breathing lasting 10 seconds or more, leading to serious health complications. Moreover, these lapses in breathing can happen more than 100 times in one night! Although you will likely be unaware of these moments when breathing stops, your brain is well aware. Lacking oxygen, the brain signals the body to awaken in order to restart breathing.
Likewise, you won’t remember being awake, but this vicious cycle adds up to a lot of lost sleep night after night. In fact, aside from snoring, one of signals that may indicate sleep apnea is daytime sleepiness and difficulty concentrating and remembering. Other symptoms of sleep apnea include morning headaches and sore throats, gasping for air during sleep, and frequent trips to the bathroom at night.
