Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)?
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is when your throat muscles temporarily relax. When this happens, your airway is narrowed or blocked during sleep, and breathing ceases momentarily. Because of this, your sleep becomes severely fragmented leaving you with insufficient quality of sleep. To gain control in your throat and to reopen the airway, you wake up. This may not be something you remember in the morning which is why you might be wondering why you are so fatigued. OSA plays a deleterious role on your overall health, including physiological and psychological distress.
Signs and symptoms:
Excessive daytime sleepiness
Increased neck circumference
