Sleep Disorders are very common health problem.

Almost everyone at some point wakes up tired and feels tired all.

Reducing the amount of sleep you get whether it be for school, your job, your family and life, in general, is bad.

Sleep is the universal building block for the body’s ability to function.

The inability to get adequate rest on a regular basis may require medical treatment.

Sleep disorders are complex problems. There are many medical disorders that involve sleeplessness.

Some of the main sleeping disorders are:

1. Obstructive Sleep Apnea Teeth grinding Sleep-walking

2. Restless Leg Syndrome (uncontrollable leg movement)

3. Rapid Eye Movement Behavior Disorder (RBD) (acting out dreams while sleeping)

Sleep apnea affects around 20-30 million Americans. These numbers do not tell the full story of how bad sleep apnea problem has become.

Sleep apnea affects the brain, damages the heart and is dismissed as not a big deal by many physicians.

1. Sleep Apnea Can Cause Temporary Brain Damage Apnea (cessation of breathing) affects the brain in many ways.

When a person’s normal breathing pattern is interrupted during sleep, that person is never able to fall to sleep.

Rest is for the body, sleep is for the brain. The brain reboots during sleep.

With proper therapy, an individual with sleep apnea is able to get deep sleep within a few weeks and their brain will be able to reset.

2. Sleep Apnea Causes Permanent Heart Damage

When a person has shallow or multiple non-breathing episodes during sleep, the oxygen levels in the blood drop.

Your blood carries oxygen to all of your body tissues.

During the periods of low blood oxygen levels, the heart has to pump extra blood to make up for the loss.

This can cause higher than normal blood pressure and irreversible changes to the heart muscle. The heart is a muscle in the body. The harder it works the bigger it gets.

An enlarged heart no longer works as it should. An overworked heart is a potential time bomb.

If the blood oxygen levels drop to low, it can trigger a heart attack or even death. Lack of oxygen to your heart tissue can cause chest pain.

When the heart muscle does not receive enough oxygen, it can cause a heart attack.

3. Is Snoring anything to be concerned about?

Everybody snores. Snoring is common issue, but it is not normal.

Snoring indicates that something is cutting off the oxygen’s path into the lungs.

Between sleep apnea and snoring an individual may experience any of the following medical conditions:

1. Chronic Chest Pain
2. High Blood Pressure
3. Mood Swings
4. Mental Deficiencies
5. Stress
6. Weight Gain (in spite of clean diet with regular exercise)

These can all be treated, but in many instances, the real cause is sleep apnea.

Imagine you are diagnosed with multiple medical problems.

You spend large amounts of money on doctor visits, treatments and medications.

Then you find out your other medical problems have all been caused by sleep apnea, which is a treatable medical condition.

Sleep apnea is the worst of all types of sleep disorders.
