I am wondering if you are familiar with Sleep Apnea? If so, feel free to share. Does it cause hormones change, lack of sleeping, lack of breathing, contribute heart health problem? It would be great if you share about it. Sleep Apnea is sleeping with no air for a few second often all night. Often I get real tired even I had plenty of sleep. Share and help others including me to learn more about this issue. I am not afraid but I want know more and help myself to get better.
