Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder that arises as the soft tissues at the back of your throat collapses by blocking the airway. As this occur, it stops the airflow, results in a significant drop in your blood-oxygen levels, thereby signaling your brain to wake up accompanied by gasping and choking. OSA can be fatal if the condition is kept untreated.
Some of the common symptoms of this condition includes:
- High blood pressure
- Labored breathing
- Dry mouth
- Excessive snoring
- Severe headaches in the morning
- Sweating during breathing
