    believe me I have the same issue where I sleep either good bad or not at all. Sometimes it’ll be three days before I finally get some sleep. It is possible.

    only about 60% of adults with OSA are overweight. yes, overweight does make it worse, but other people should not make the mistake of thinking they can”t have OSA.

    He had surgery was he was 4. But the year previously the symptoms were getting worse and worse. He would wake us up down the hall in our bedroom with the snores, and when he would hold his breath, it would make you want to shake him to get him to breathe again. Clearly at such a young age…it is anatomical, the enlargement of the soft tissues and adenoids in the back of the throat. He is in no way overweight like most adults with obstructive sleep apnea.
