    I have it too , I was told two years ago now, I could not sleep with CPAP, I went to sleep lab twice, tried different masks , but couldn’t breath through any , the doctor said that a muscle relaxes in the back of my throught , and blocks my breathing , I snoar a lot very loud , my wife wakes me up to turn on my side to breath easier, and to lower the snoaring sound , I feel very bad for her, I wake up with headaches , feel sleepy and very tired , it relly made my life miserable .

    You are waking up because you are not breathing. If you take a sleeping pill, it might prevent you from waking up. That is not a good thing. If you have been diagnosed, let the doctors treat you with a CPAP machine or surgery.

    I have severe sleep apnea. I was a zombie getting no sleep at night for over 1 year. It even affected my heart. I now use CPAP. Works 100%. I sleep soundly all night. I use the nasal pillow type. I am a human being again, rested, happy and healthy.

    i have just been diagnosed with sleep apnea, after suffering a few seizures in my sleep it has triggered a form of nocturnal epilepsy, im on meds (to control the seizures)and so far so good, ive lost a few kgs(although im not hugely overweight) but still am not sleeping the best so hopefully it begins to get better

    I stop breathing in my sleep too no matter how I sleep. I would wake up too sleepy to go to work most of the time. I fell asleep standing up at work often and fell asleep behind the wheel too. The thing is that I don’t have health care or the cash to go to sleep study. One day I fell asleep on the couch sitting up right. The best sleep I had in years. I woke up feeling like a teen again so I sleep like this often and still have to same effects. Sleeping up right unblocks my airways.

    I think it’s bad if you take a sleeping pill.. I also have sleep apnea, and it’s really hard for me to sleep. Try sleeping Sideways, maybe it’ll help. Another thing you can do is ask ur doctor about CPAP.

    I’m wondering if it would be bad if I took a sleeping pill to help me sleep during the night. I just recently found out that I had this because of my g/f telling me that I stop berating for long periods, and I snore really bad. I’ll usually wake up many times during the night and I’m totally exhausted right now. I wont take a sleeping pill till I ask the doctor though, ‘m not that crazy for sleep

    go look for treatment.. I work with it.. there’s a device called CPAP or VPAP.. it really helps.. although you cannot die, apnea prevents you from REM sleep..which is really important bla bla… go look for treatment

    I had this only one time in my life, and needless to say it was frightening because I didn’t know what it was and why it was happening to me. Maybe it I am suffering from sleep apnea without knowing it, but as far as I know I only noticed it one time. I kept waking up gasping for air.
