Does your child snore? Does your child show other signs of disturbed sleep: long pauses in breathing, much tossing and turning in the bed, chronic mouth breathing during sleep, night sweats (owing to increased effort to breathe)? All these, and especially the snoring, are possible signs of sleep apnea, which is commoner among children than is generally recognized. It's estimated than 1 to 4 percent of children suffer from sleep apnea, many of them being between 2 and 8 years old.
I am posting this one because I used to have sleep apnea and I know how much it can affect your life... fortunately, I lost enough weight to "cure" my SA, but seriously, if you have SA and need a CPAP, USE IT! It makes all the difference in the world. I promise if you give it a chance you'll feel a positive difference.
