If You Feel This When You Sleep, It Could Be D.a.n.g.e.r.o.u.s
1. Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is linked to a large group of dangerous diseases, experts say. Sleep apnea happens when the muscles in your upper airway relax during sleep and pinch out of your airway, which prevents you from getting enough air. Your breathing may stop for 10 seconds or more at a time, until your reflexes kick in and you start breathing again. Sleep apnea is associated with higher risks of diabetes, regardless of obesity, and that sleep apnea can increase blood sugar levels.
2. Long-term snoring
Snoring is caused by the tongue not having enough room in the back of the throat, particularly in people who are obese, have heart failure, or sleep on their backs. There are chemicals in the brain whose job it is to trigger breathing, and these can fail in some people who snore. As a result, oxygen levels drop dramatically, causing cortisone, adrenaline, and other hormones to rise. These hormones contribute to high blood pressure and heart irregularities and can cause or exacerbate heart failure, trigger heart attacks, or even sudden death. Even without snoring, people with obstructive sleep apnea have reduced oxygen in their system that can damage the heart.
3. Restless Leg Syndrome
Anxious leg disorder, also called Willis-Ekbom disease, is a resting neurological problem linked to genuine illness.
Restless legs syndrome, also called Willis-Ekbom disease, is a neurological sleep disorder linked to serious health conditions. Anyone who has experienced restless legs syndrome (RLS) knows that it is a strange condition. It was recently discovered that women with RLS are at an increased risk of dying from heart disease…. There are medications for RLS, but it should be examined for underlying causes such as Parkinson’s disease and kidney failure. Iron deficiency is a common cause that can be successfully treated with iron supplements. Both men and women with RLS are likely to have type 2 diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea – all of which increase the risk of heart disease and heart attack.
Narcolepsy is a neurological sleep disorder that affects the way the brain controls sleep and wakefulness, with many people experiencing severe daytime sleepiness. This is regulated by a protein called hypocretin, which is often deficient in people with narcolepsy. Research suggests that the absence or reduction of this nighttime immersion may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition, people with narcolepsy also often have conditions such as diabetes, depression, and obesity, which are independently associated with heart disease.
5. What in the event that you are not sleeping at all?
Insomnia affects 40 million Americans each year – but as with any sleep disorder, don’t hesitate to talk to your healthcare provider for help. It’s such an important part of your health….
