Forums Neurology Sleep Apnea- A Sleep Disorder

  • Post

    Sleep apnea is when partly or fully blocked airways cause you to stop breathing for a few seconds to a few minutes during sleep. It’s usually a partner who notices the symptoms, which include snoring or choking or gasping for breath during sleep. You may feel the need for sleep persistently. The urge for napping, daytime sleepiness, trouble focusing or remembering things, feeling irritable or short-tempered, needing caffeine or other stimulants to stay awake and trouble falling or staying asleep at night (insomnia) are some of the indicators of Sleep Apnea.
