Many people have trouble sleeping. Sometimes these problems are bigger than they seem. A lot of people suffer from sleep apnea, sleep disturbances and night terrors and sometimes it is very difficult to get rid of these problems.
Sleep apnea is actually a disorder and it manifests itself as interrupted breathing while you sleep. If this is left untreated it may cause the breathing to stop while you sleep. This means that the body and brain are not getting enough oxygen.
There are actually two types of sleep apnea:
- OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) which is caused by blockage of the airway when the back of the throat’s soft tissue collapses during sleep.
- Central sleep apnea- the airway is not blocked, however the brain does not signal the muscles to breathe because the respiratory control enter is not stable.
Any person, no matter the age, can be affected by sleep apnea. The risk factors include gastroesophageal reflux, having a family history of sleep apnea, having a large neck size, being over 40, being overweight, being male and nasal obstructions due to sinus problems, allergies or a deviated septum.
