What is sleep apnea? Sleep apnea is a common sleeping disorder that is characterized as one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while a person is sleeping. The problem with sleep apnea is that most people don't realize that they are suffering from it until a family member or bed partner notices the warning signs.
What causes sleep apnea? It is generally a result of a blocked or narrowed airway. Some symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, pauses in snoring, choking or gasping for air while asleep, morning headaches, and memory problems, to name a few.
Fortunately, sleep apnea can be treated. Some typical treatments include weight management, use of denatl devices, and use of CPAP machines. You should seek advice from your physician if you exhibit any of the sleep apnea symptoms.
Sleep apnea can have many negative impacts on one's life. It can affect your ability to perform at work, leading to an eventual loss of wages. You may be eligible for long term disability insurance benefits if the condition prevents you from being able to work.
