Despite being one of the most common sleep disorders around, sleep apnea often goes undiagnosed and unnoticed due to a lack of awareness regarding its signs and symptoms.
When untreated, it not only disturbs sleep patterns, it increases risk of several serious health conditions. Another side effect is feeling drowsy and fatigued during the day, potentially to the detriment of your ability to work effectively and drive safely.
Sleep apnea is commonly thought to affect only older or overweight individuals. The reality is the condition can affect young and old, male and female, those out of shape and the super fit, so awareness of the signs and effects is important for everyone.
