Sleep apnea is a serious condition in which breathing is interrupted during sleep. If this condition persists and is left untreated, it can lead to more serious health issues, including heart attacks and strokes. Dr. Gray notes that snoring is also problematic, disrupting not only the sleep of the individual who snores but also that of anyone else who is in hearing range. It can lead to relationship problems as well as health issues.
