Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
Many people treat snoring as a joke or something they feel embarrassed about. But loud snoring—especially when accompanied by daytime fatigue—may be a sign of sleep apnea, a common disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts as you sleep. This “silent (not-so-silent) epidemic” is much more serious than just snoring, it leads to many diseases and can be potentially fatal. The first step is to get over the embarrassment and acknowledge that you have a serious illness.
