What are the usual causes of central sleep apnea for a young adult?

June 3rd, 2012

I have been recently diagnosed with both obstructive and central sleep apnea (mostly central) and I would really like to know if anyone out there can give me some of the causes. I am 19 years old, did cross country and track intensely in high school (so I think I am healthy?), and probably may have had sleep apnea for about 4 years now. My dad snores a lot and I am definitely not overweight. I just want to know if anyone has heard of a similar case because I would really like answers since I just want to sleep already 🙁 By the way, I am not getting my CPAP until next week because my sleep doctor is looking the results from my second sleep study in regards to the central sleep apnea. Answers will be greatly appreciated!!

Sleep apnea is one of the sleeping disorders that is common in children and adults.
Some of the causes of sleep apnea are :-
* Not enough oxygen level
* enlarged tonsils
* deviated septum
There are many causes but let your doctor decide after the sleep study.
Don’t worry, you’ll be fine 🙂
