From nightmares to insomnia to sleep apnea, one out of every three people suffers from a sleep disorder.
Having a sleep disorder may sound tiring, but few know that it can be life-threatening. For example, sleep apnea , the stopping of breathing while asleep, has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease. Symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, gasping for air, nightmares and waking up frequently.
