If You Don’t Snooze, You Lose

Although few will admit to it, most of us will snore on occasion. Commonly, if we suffer from allergies, drink alcohol, or sleep on our back, we may find ourselves letting out the occasional snort or breathing heavily. When the snoring is chronic, however, and there are pauses followed by gasping or choking noises, it could be a sign of sleep apnea. This could be a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. The effects of which can lead to waking up frequently, sleepiness during the day, headaches, depression and memory issues.
