Those who are overweight may be at a higher risk of developing obstructive sleep apnea. Since excess fatty tissue is prevalent, obesity increases the chances of sleep apnea. It isn't always the case that everyone with sleep apnea is also obese; there are many patients who have sleep apnea but are a healthy weight. During sleep, when throat and tongue muscles are more relaxed, this soft tissue can cause the airway to become blocked.
If one isn't sleeping properly during the night or waking multiple times, that leads to daytime sleepiness. The body is unable to rest fully. Most people don't realize that sleep apnea may be the underlying cause of this issue.
Snoring is an indicator of sleep apnea. Snoring occurs when the air flow is obstructed. Obstruction of the airflow may cause gasping, hence sleep apnea.
Those with obstructive sleep apnea are much more likely to witness night time sweating. If anyone experiences excessive night time sweating, they should be tested for sleep apnea.
