The muscles in the throat controls the speech, swallow, and breath from a person and when you sleep you use your muscles much less and that causes that the throat should get smaller narrower, by most of the people its not a problem at all, but by other it will cause snoring and a full stop of breath when the throat is fully tighten, in most of the cases the person will wake right away to breath, when he got up he will take a strong and deep breath, because when you’re not breathing normally will the number of your oxygen lower and the carbon monoxide number will go up, sometimes the person will wake up with a feeling that he is choking, the whole game of waking and breathing will take just a few seconds therefore most of the people will not know how series his condition is.

To diagnose sleep apnea the doctor will look on the overall health and medical record, he will also look at the size of the throat and if the airways are small and the tongue is big, as discussed the person himself will not know anything and he cant hear if he is snoring at night so the doctor will ask a family member if the person snores or wakes to get a breath, often the doctor will send to a sleep clinic where they will monitor the quality of sleep, test the breath rate, heart, and how long every phase of sleep is, also they will look on how the person lay’s when he sleep because this might have an effect on the situation.

  1. By reading this article I have realized that I may be a victim of sleep apnea because by reading through the all article I have came across some of the symptoms I experience while sleeping for example snoring, waking up I the night to breath, sometimes waking up with a headache and not concentrating during day so am gonna start up treatment soon thanks for this article because you have saved many keep sharing 

  2. I had a good read on your article. My husband and daughter suffer with sleep apnea. Before we found a solution for their sleep apnea.

     It was a pain in the butt for them. They couldn’t stop tossing and turning. Until we started looking more into it. Your article could save alot of people and parents time. Also helping them find a solution.

    Good work, can’t wait to read more!

  3. Although I have no personal experience with this issue, I do have two nephews who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and both are using CPAP machines.  The oldest is 28 and has been using a CPAP for about 3 years.  His brother is just starting his 20’s.  

    Both have been very overweight for many years however, the oldest has finally figured it out and has been following a strict diet and exercise plan and has lost over a hundred pounds so far.  🙂  I will have to ask him if his sleep apnea is getting any better because of the weight loss.  I do know that he is feeling better physically.

    The younger is (I think) in denial.  He still eats what he wants and, I believe is also at risk for diabetes if he doesn’t get things together and start his own diet and exercise program.

    Is there anything that one could say that might open the eyes of someone like this without hurting their feelings?  Maybe that’s what it WOULD take.  I mean, some things just need to be said, don’t you think?

    Anyway, I enjoyed reading your post.  There is some valuable info here that I will try to pass on, hopefully in a compassionate way.


    • Thank You Wayne!

      100 pounds is a number! wow! Going on diet is very hard (I WENT IT THROUGH ALREADY…) so its easier to be in denial.. pushing him will not help to much.. just talk positive about the whole diet concept but not directly and hopefully it will be a question of time and he will start to do the right thing. Good Luck
