This disorder affects millions of Americans,
causing disrupted sleep and daytime tiredness

If you have sleep apnea, you might
be tired of being tired-dealing
with frequent nighttime wake-ups
that leave you sleepy during the day. Or you
might not even know that you're waking up,
but your spouse is all too aware of your loud
snoring and gasping for air.
For someone who has obstructive sleep
apnea, "the airway behind the soft palate and
tongue collapses, which generates arousal from
sleep or reduced oxygen levels during sleep,"
says James A. Rowley, MD, a spokesman for the
American Academy of Sleep Medicine. A less
common type of the syndrome is central sleep
apnea, during which the brain essentially forgets to signal specific muscles to breathe.
As many as 25 million Americans have sleep
apnea. If you think you might be one of them,
it's something to take seriously.
"Extreme daytime sleepiness affects all
aspects of life," Rowley says, "including performance at work and in school and interaction
with others."
