Snoring is no joke: Thousands of Canadians have sleep apnea and don’t know it. While snoring may be considered a source of jokes and laughter for the person who does snore, for their bed partner, it is not a humorous matter. The disrupted sleep of the non-snoring partner is very frustrating with disturbed sleep and can lead to marital discord. However for the person who is snoring, they may have a very serious life-threatening condition known as Sleep Apnea.
The problems associated with sleep apnea are
- High blood pressure
- Heart Arrhythmia
- Increased risk of strokes and heart attacks
- Daytime sleepiness
- Increased risk of car accidents or work place accidents
- Loss of memory and confusion
