Question

  • May 19, 2015
  • Source:
  • American Academy of Sleep Medicine
  • Summary:
  • The probability of having a high risk of obstructive sleep apnea increased with increasing severity of post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms (PTSD), a new study of young US veterans shows. The study involved 195 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who visited a Veterans' Affairs outpatient PTSD clinic for evaluation. Results show that 69.2 percent of participants had a high risk for sleep apnea, and this risk increased with PTSD symptom severity.

Not sure if I fall into this catagory, yet, but I wonder if the issues I dealt with led to my sleep apnea? I will certainly be following this one very closely.
