Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder that causes a person to stop breathing during sleep. It can occur when the muscles in the back of the throat fail to keep the airway open, even when the person is inhaling.
Sleep apnea is a potentially dangerous sleep disorder in which breathing stops and starts repeatedly. If you snore loudly and always feel exhausted, even after a full night’s sleep, you may have sleep apnea.

Treatment for sleep apnea may include incorporating healthier practices, such as losing weight and quitting smoking alongside medical treatments such as the use of a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine or surgery. It is important to see a doctor if you think you might have sleep apnea, as it can lead to other serious health problems.
