Sleep apnea is a very common sleep disorder that causes the sufferer to suddenly stop breathing while they are asleep. Some people only experience it for a second, which can cause them to snore loudly. In more severe cases, the person may stop breathing for minutes and will suddenly wake up in the middle of the night.
One of the largest health impacts that sleep apnea can have is on the amount of rest you get every night. If you frequently experience sleep apnea, that means you are not getting the long and restful period of sleep your body needs to be able to properly function. This can make it difficult to concentrate, may cause frequent headaches, and can leave you feeling absolutely drained.
