sleep deprivationSleep apnea takes a huge toll on your body and your quality of life when left untreated. The interruptions in breathing impact your quality of sleep. In the beginning, you may only experience light fatigue throughout the day, poor ability to concentrate, and even irritability, but overtime, the lack of sleep can lead to sleep deprivation. When your body becomes deprived of sleep, the sleepiness you feel throughout the day can intensify and also start to cause additional symptoms with your body’s ability to function. This not only drastically decreases your quality of life, but you can even put yourself and others in danger.
