If you feel tired after a full night's sleep or if you snore loudly during the night, there is a chance you may have sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. People who don't seek treatment could face a higher risk of heart attacks, strokes, and other health problems. Schedule an appointment with the doctor to see if treatment is needed.

Sleep Apnea 


"I have been using my machine for about 6 years. Before I started using my machine I was always very tired. In the morning I felt fine, but within an hour or so I  started to feel sleepy. I would fall asleep in church or even watching TV. I had no control over falling asleep. While driving one morning I feel asleep at the wheel and had an accident. Thankfully I didn't get hurt. Now I feel more rested in the morning and I have more energy to do my housework. I wouldn't give up my CPAP machine for anything."
