Symptoms and side effects of sleep apnea
● The first symptom of sleep apnea is fatigue, which can often be mistaken for being tired. Others experience restless sleep, interrupted sleep, night sweats, and/or heavy breathing during sleep.
● Persistent fatigue and poor concentration are the most common signs of sleep apnea, which are often mistaken for the “normal” symptom of being tired.
● The most significant sign of sleep apnea is constant snoring, which can be very disruptive to a person’s life. If you’re a snorer, you know how difficult it is to get a good night’s sleep when someone else in the bed is snoring. Scientifically speaking, sleep apnea is a condition where the airway is either partially or completely blocked during sleep.
The side effects of sleep apnea are numerous if you just ignore it. Some of the most common include high blood pressure, heart failure, stroke, diabetes, enlarged heart and/or throat, and depression. While the list of potential side effects is extensive, the most serious side effect of sleep apnea is death. Because sleep apnea is a condition that directly impacts the heart and blood vessels, those who are diagnosed with sleep apnea are at a much greater risk of dying from a heart attack or another blood vessel-related condition. You’re not the only one. A lot of people are facing the same problem, and the only answer to their problems is a CPAP Machine.
