Sometimes it can be a blockage; frequently it is common in people who are overweight and have trouble keeping their air passages open. I’m sure you can google this ailment and find good information for your research.

Can sleep apnea keep a person from going to bed at a certain scheduled time?

Question by summerxsummer00: Can sleep apnea keep a person from going to bed at a certain scheduled time?
I was trying to make some dorm rules but my roomate says her sleep apnea prevents her from going to sleep before midnight…is there any way this is true. She does not snore, nor does she wear any masks or anything to help her breath better that may prevent her from falling asleep. Yet she insists that she can not get off of her computer at a certain time and just go to sleep because of her condition. Am i missing something or Is this even possible??

No. It disrupts how well she’ll sleep at night but it dont give a person insomnia. It’s just a breathing problem people have whiel they sleep. They stop breathing for a little bit in there sleep. and if people are really bad they have to wear a breathing thing to bed… SHE’S a liar.

It is common (or possible) to suffer from sleep apnea if you only sleep on your stomach or side?

Answer by •Kiwi7(@_@)
No, I have sleep apnea because it is genetic. But with me, when I sleep on my back I have a huge problem with it, because I can not breath, I suffer slowly. On my stomach, I feel that I am not getting to much oxygen in my lungs and I start to choke(somehow) This is why I sleep on my sides, because it is more comfortable and I can breathe easier, as well as my father(he sleeps on his sides). So it may be common(or possible) to suffer from sleeping on your stomach, but I do not know about sides. Hope I helped!!
