At the point when this happens, you may wind up making stifling noises or snoring uproariously as you attempt to sleep. Your body and mind progress toward becoming oxygen denied and you may attempt to wake up. This can happen a few times in the night, and in some extreme cases, it can happen a few hundred times in a night. There is no fixed cause of sleep apnea. It can be genetic or even after the effect of an injury or surgery.  Here are the symptoms and suggested sleep apnea treatments that can cure this problem.
