Sleep apnea can affect anyone regardless of age, but is more common in the elderly.
The use of cigarettes, alcohol, and certain drugs can irritate or calm the throat muscles and cause obstructive sleep apnea.
There are also hereditary factors such as enlarged tonsils, tight throats, and thick necks.
Your doctor can advise you on diagnosing a sleep disorder and suggest methods of treating it.
