Sleep Apnea

if you have obstructive sleep apnoea your breathing pauses for brief periods while you’re asleep normally when you breathe in air flows in through your mouth and nose and down your throat also called the pharynx air then flows down your windpipe or trachea spreading through a tree like structure of smaller tubes into your lungs each time you breathe in negative suction pressure pulls the soft tissues in your mouth and pharynx inward the muscles in your pharynx respond by pulling the soft tissues outward again which keeps your airway open when you sleep it’s normal for the muscles in your mouth tongue and pharynx to relax slightly but not enough to block your airway if you have obstructive sleep apnoea the muscles of your mouth and pharynx may relax too much your tongue drops on to the soft tissue in the roof of your mouth pressing it against the back of your throat this completely blocks the flow of air into your lungs the lack of oxygen in your lungs wakes you up you may gasp for air to re-establish air flow before falling asleep again the cycle of apnea and waking up may happen many times at night preventing restful sleep factors that may contribute to obstructive sleep apnea include obesity because more fat may be present in the walls of the pharynx a small or receding jaw with a narrowed airway loss of muscle tone in your pharynx due to aging and swollen tonsils common symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea are snoring morning headaches chronic daytime sleepiness fatigue irritability and impaired concentration left untreated obstructive sleep apnea may lead to complications such as high blood pressure heart disease irregular heartbeats called arrhythmias stroke and diabetes your doctor may recommend lifestyle changes to treat obstructive sleep apnea including losing weight sleeping on your side not smoking and avoiding substances that can make you sleepy such as alcohol and sedatives for mild or moderate obstructive sleep apnoea an oral appliance may keep your airway open this device works by pulling your jaw forward and moving both your tongue and the roof of your mouth away from the back of your throat the most common and effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is a continuous positive airway pressure or CPAP machine this machine pumps air through a tube into a mask that fits over your nose or both your nose and mouth the mild air pressure of the CPAP machine helps keep your airway open enabling you to get a deep restful sleep

  • I have obstructive sleep apnea. The sleep study showed that I stopped breathing roughly 186 times an hour, not a night but every single hour. It was one of the worst cases the sleep specialist I was seeing at the time had ever seen. I now use a CPAP machine every night. Still absolutely fatigued every single day though. My sleep specialist has me on 40 mg of Adderall per day to combat the daytime sleepiness.

  • I have sleep apnea and sometimes right in the middle of it, I will have a dream that my jaw is shut and cannot open, In my dream I will take both of my hands and try to pry my mouth open while I am suffocating for air, griping the top and bottom sets of my teeth trying to get a finger in between to pull them apart. Then finally I wake up gasping and and try to turn my body around to stop it. I almost always wake up with a headache. But when I went to a Carnivore Diet, after about 3 months I noticed I had been getting much better sleep, and almost never have that occur again.
