So how do you know if you have excessive daytime sleepiness related to sleep apnea? Excessive daytime sleepiness related to sleep apnea can go undiagnosed for years because people might not recognize their symptoms or are using things like caffeine to attempt to stay awake. “If you’re actually sleeping the majority of the night and feeling MORE tired than you did without the CPAP, chances are that you have developed complex sleep apnea,” explains Joseph Krainin, MD, board certified in sleep medicine and neurology and founder of the online sleep apnea clinic Singular Sleep. “Complex sleep apnea refers to a few different. Because you partially wake up when your breathing pauses, your sleep is interrupted, and you often feel tired and irritable the next day.

Sleep apnea is almost twice as common in men as it is in. Because apnea wakes you up repeatedly throughout the night, you never reach that restful state of sleep that you need to restore your energy levels. As a result, you can wake up more fatigued than when you went to bed, and then suffer drowsiness and. If you’re still tired after using the CPAP machine, then you most certainly have CPAP resistant syndromeor True Residual Sleepiness. The science explains that there is a residual sleepinessin some patients with sleep apnea, which takes time to disappear (1).

You can help the residual sleepiness to diminish, by following the tips from this article. Sleep apnea leaves you tired, even after a full night’s sleep. People who have sleep apnea can wake up 15 to 25 times an hour during sleep – without knowing it. The condition causes them to awaken for only a few seconds, but leaves the sufferer feeling exhausted, even after a full night’s rest. “Sleep apnea is a problem with the upper airway, the part of the airway that runs from the voice.

Though difficulty breathing during the day is possible, the most severe symptoms of Central Sleep Apnea happen during the night, as the autonomic nervous system operates differently during wakefulness than during sleep. Patients with Central Sleep Apnea may experience daytime sleepiness and headaches as a result of their interrupted sleep cycles. The cause of UARS is undersized airways that are easily compensated for during the day, but prone to obstructions when relaxed during sleep.

The signs include mouth breathing, an inability to sleep. However, napping too much during the day can make it more difficult to get to sleep at night. If you oversleep by a few hours in the afternoon, your body may not be fully ready to sleep again by.

When left untreated, sleep apnea often causes excessive daytime sleepiness or fatigue, as well as morning headaches and memory loss. Sleep apnea also is a threat to your safety, as it increases your risk of drowsy driving and workplace accidents. Untreated sleep apnea raises your risk for serious health problems.

Sleep apnea is usually caused by an obstruction of your airway passages during sleep, which causes you to wake up in the middle of the night or feel very tired in the mornings.

Sleep apnea is a dangerous health problem that causes you to stop breathing for short periods of time while you sleep, usually because your airway is obstructed for such reasons as the shape of your tongue, a deviated septum in your nose, or enlarged tonsils.

Sleep apnea—best diagnosed with a sleep study—refers to the condition in which a person’s brain and body fail to get sufficient oxygen at night during sleep due to either obstructed airways or central brain mechanisms; as a result, the individual feels exhausted during the day.

In addition to the symptoms that can accompany any sleep disorder, people with sleep apnea can have overworked hearts because the heart tries to pump blood harder when it senses low oxygen levels at night.

  • Gravity is the main reason when your tongue relaxes on your throat. Your head must stay sideways while your mouth is pointed towards the bed side. Something you have to get used to this position, even though you will experience a change in movement simply because continuous blood flow throughout your body /*\

  • Right when it said “it was due to your tongue and throat relaxed” I’m like yay!! It’s not because of me being obese and than it said it could also be because your obese I’m like ������

  • I don’t really believe in oversleeping. Yes, some people sleep a lot, more than average, yet they’re still tired. But that’s because they’re ill in some way, which is also why they oversleep, it’s the body trying to heal itself. Sleeping more might not be enough to heal, so they’re stuck being both ill and sleeping a lot, and wrongly conclude that sleeping a lot is bad.

  • i just learned i have OSA, now im waiting to do the sleep study so i can get the CPAP. is so hard to get through the day when all i feel is exhaustion and cant focus.

  • Haha that’s funny as you said that I legit flicked my eyes to the left of the screen and I noticed the whey powder, fuck, I had some today gonna see if I have a brain fog tomorrow, I have been getting but idk man we will see

  • Hi Dr Sam. Can you please do a video on Gout.. i suffer from it, in fact it’s inflamed right now. I know about alluprunol, but don’t want to take it as it alters liver function. Is there a cure?

  • Thank You once again for taking the time to make these helpful videos Dr. Sam Bailey, I get Sleep Apnea only when I am lying on my back lol, not sure why this is the case, but I have in the past woke myself up when lying on my bed watching TV and I have a snooze.

    When I wake up I initially struggle to get my breath and have a mild/minor pain in my lungs area, I am not aware of me having Sleep Apnea when I sleep on my side, but I do suffer from some of the ailments and side effects that you mentioned.

    I do have dry mouth and am always thirsty throughout the day, but I assume that is due to me being Diabetic, I also have Erectile Dysfunction, but again I have always assumed that being Diabetic and having Hypertension when the main/only causes of my Impotence?

  • I love your videos doctor Sam. You are a true doctor, a healer in the manner of the father of medicine, Hippocrates who is one of my heroes! keep up your great work xx

  • I heard that the risk of sleep apnea is increased with the diameter of your neck; if your neck diameter exceeds 42cm you’re likely to develop sleep apnea. This is in direct correlation with obesity

  • Kudos for the video content! Apologies for the intrusion, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you researched Franaar Magic Dream Formula (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a great one of a kind guide for eradicating sleep apnea and snoring without the headache. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my mate after a lifetime of fighting got cool success with it.

  • Nice Video! Apologies for chiming in, I would appreciate your initial thoughts. Have you tried Parlandealey Active Life Process (should be on google have a look)? It is a great one off guide for learning how to stop feeling tired without the normal expense. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my old buddy Taylor finally got amazing results with it.

  • I’m going through exactly the same right now. I feel constantly drained and every morning I’m waking up in empty. I’m going to cut dairy completely out and give it a couple of weeks.

  • I have sleep apnea, severe gluten intolerance/ allergy and lactose ( dairy ) intolerance. I also have mild sleep apnea. Mild shallow breathing. Also i ate protein bars and they have whey protein in them!!!!

  • I’m using my sleep machine and when I wake up I feel like I had a fast party on a treadmill with barbiturates and angry hookers who screamed at me all night long! What is going on!?!!?!! ��

  • All foods have histamines, some types more than others. Your body increases attack forces against it thus expending vital resources in response.
    Central apnea isn’t always improved by cpap. My cpap almost killed me. Every hour I stop breathing over -300times!! I wish cpap worked for me!!

  • I am always so tired, actually in the lowest point of my life. I eat very healthy, exercise a lot. I do have long days and it’s very stressy. But my day is no more different than other students in my class who feel totally normal, but I just still feel so tired. I can’t concentrate, forget things sooo quickly, can’t focus at all for studying. Sometimes I feel like I am going to faint or vomit as a result of extreme fatigue. I am very anxious. I might lay down early and wake up at the right time and I still just feel overwhelmingly tired. My stomach is so bloated, I always feel so dirty but take a bath regularly. I treat myself with essential oils. Get abdominal massage. Drink plenty of water, try to lay down early and wake up early but never get it right. I do breathing exercises, listen to music. I have enough social contact and go outside. I don’t know what is wrong with me. I am always soo tired and have never felt so trapped and confused. Please help me!

  • I have been to so many doctors and they said sleep apnea but machine didn’t work I feel like dying it is so bad I can barely keep my eyes open can’t remember anything can’t wake up in the morning it feels like I’m on drugs. If anyone has any ideas please comment

  • I’ve been to the doctors several times about the fact that my sinuses are always completely blocked. Out of all the possible solutions he suggested, he never once mentioned food. Out of nowhere i developed a rash on my cheeks and was told by a dermatologist that it was an incurable skin condition called rosacea. I was always exhausted through poor quality sleep. I noted that my rosacea appeared after changing my diet to what I thought was a super healthy one. So I started to play around with food. It took a while but when I stopped eating vegetables and dairy I could breathe through my nose, my skin cleared up and I could sleep. I’m never listening to a doctor or dermatologist again. Great video.

  • DUDE!!!!! Ive been contemplating doing an elimination diet but for some reason you inspired me to actually do it. Ive battles brain fog and fatigue for 10 years with doctors telling me it was depression. So anyways I’ve been on it for 3 days and I feel amazing!!!! Like a veil has been removed from me. LOVE YOU!!!!! Thank you!!!!

  • I kept turning up the volume and turned the bass off for this video. I’ve had sleep apnea for a very long time and been on CPAP for about 11 years. Even with CPAP, I struggle to get refreshing sleep.

  • Maybe a bad reaction from Sucralose, the common artificial sweetener used. I get brainfog from sucralose myself. BCAA, drinks, powders etc. Went natural, no issues yet. ��

  • Yo, Max. When you said you was having issues with a milk allergy, was it effecting your nose? I am getting this brain-fog, and I have been having it for around 5 years now. My nose is constantly blocked on one side, and every time I wake up it feels I’ve been hit in the head by a shovel. I do come around in a few hour, but the brain fog remains. Symptoms get a little better a few hours after I wake, but it still feels like I am opperating on 50% performance. Please reply! and thank you:)

  • I found this because I just realised my problem is dairy and was searching to see if anyone else had the same thing. I can wake up in the morning and have a cappuccino at breakfast then by around 10:30 be back in bed sleeping until lunchtime (I work for myself from home). If I have the same coffee without milk, no problem. Any time of day I have milk, I can be asleep shortly after. I’m about to go totally dairy free. Hoping my sleep will also improve as like you I wake up feeling tired and foggy.

  • an impaired explanation of the problem/solution but glad it worked for you this way. The gist of this video in one word: Whey Protein is Bad!

  • Get rid of the supplement garbage protein shakes and caffeine, yes, caffeine! Walk for a minimum of 30 mins each day stay away from MSG.

  • Very inspirational, I can’t imagine what it would be like to go through you’re whole life with brain fog. I developed chronic rhinitis after coming back from an extended period in a foreign country, it sucked, I hated it, I woke up every day with the symptoms you’ve suffered with you’re whole life. I’m a very intellectual person, and I love to learn about different things all the time, but this requires me to be well-rested, so I really can’t express how much I don’t like having this condition… fortunately it’s not a huge deal and just requires a simple one-time operation that I’m going to have in a couple of months. Once again, I’m glad to hear you got through it, I will definitely try completely eliminating dairy just to see if it helps a little.

  • Thank you dude for that valuable tip! I’ve been feeling brain foggy lately until I watched your video and realized that I was taking too much daily. I haven’t taken any daily for the last 2 days and I feel great! No longer feel sleepy, tiredom has greatly reduced…now I need to test eggs and see results but so far what you said about food being a major contributing factor makes a ton of sense. Thanks!

  • Did half of you not listen? He eliminated dairy and that didn’t fix the problem. He discovered dairy is in whey protein. Holy cow people

  • Make sure there is no mold in your house, stop drinking milk, stop jerking off/transmute sexual energy, meditate daily, exercise weekly, and do wim hof breathing exercises/cold showers!

  • I understand eliminating protein powders….but how would one get the required amounts of protein without protein shakes…the other alternative is stuffing yourself with more food.And a lot of protein based foods are also dairy based.��‍♂️

  • I have used a CPAP mask for several years. Are there any dangers of using one for so long? Can it effect your normal breathing patterns? Great videos, just joined. Very informative. I like your accent better than my Boston one:) Jeff/Boston MA

  • Like all the rest of your programmes, that was terrific. Just one thing worries me, though; I was brought up to spell it ‘apnoea’ am I out of date? Not that I’ll lose sleep over it!

  • I feel like you were describing my life for years. Problem is that I have given up all these things but maybe not all at the same time, and if I did give them up all at the same time, I had bad detox and felt worse and stopped after just a few days. I live with fatigue, constipation (TMI), and significant brain fog. Hearing that you broke free from it is inspiring.

  • I got notified yesterday then last night realized I’ve been putting this issue in the back of my head as I had my nasal passages close up for several seconds and so I realized I shook my head at the fact that you luckily for me uploaded a sleep apnea video too..is the universe awesome/timely or what!! ☺

  • omfg i HAVE SEVERE sinus problems, ive tried elimination diets going gluten and dairy free however still had whey protein i also have mild sleep apnea! chronic post nasal drip etc congestion severe! I had a DNA test done a while ago and it say Gene LCT which is a gene for Lactose intolerance that i have type CC which means my body produces 0 lactase! which is the enzyme that digests lactose! Going to eliminate whey and 100% of dairy products and see what happens, we should chat somehow how and discuss symptoms similar sense we both have sleep apnea proabably caused my lactose allergy!

  • I have enlarged turbinates (nasal congestion which is caused by inflamed nasal lining) and have had horrible fatigue the last 16 months but have a risky operation by the sounds of it in 9 days time. I will try cutting dairy as I too had protein shakes but stopped but also still drink milk

  • Doctor Sam when you have time could you possibly do a video on G6PD, and the taking of Eliquis 5mg tab for blood clots. Thanks, your the best

  • My recepie:
    Morning: Vitamin C 1g, Niacin 750mg,
    30min later: Fish oil, Lecithin
    Day: Niacinamide 500mg
    Before bed: Lutein
    Diet: no sugar, no bread, minimum bad carbs

  • Basically the whey protein powder caused him to have is nasal airway clogged, because of the allergic reaction he had from it. Once his nose was unblocked he could breath properly when he sleeps and his sleep apnea went away, which made his brain fog go away

  • Nothing is really proved here, just says it was whey protein. You said you dropped a ton of things did you not loose weight in the process?

    Now a load of people are going to try alload of baseless options when the only thing that’s actually proven is weight loss, CPAP and surgery.

  • Love your passion thanks for sharing. I don’t take whey protein but this gives me the extra motivation to look closer at what I ingest.

  • I don’t think I have this but when I try to get sleep at night my lungs stop automatically breathing by themselves and I need to do it which then effects my sleep because I’m focused on my breathing and so how I try to fix this is to think about something else or watch YouTube but can someone please tell me what I have because I have no idea what I have and I’m afraid to tell anyone, if someone told me it would make a huge change to my life

  • Very true. I have had trouble with my thyroid as well. I have bouts where I seem to need CPAP and I will go long times where I don’t. I have had months where my machine has only had to help once or twice a night if that. Without it I wake up and I am not tired at all. So I often wonder why my bouts with apnea are so hit and miss. There was a time when there was a lot to see in sleepy head the next day, but as of the last year or so absolutely nothing comes up. Why is that? I have been trying to figure out how this can be.

  • Go on an elimination diet and get tested for sleep apnea. I’m 52, a runner and eat healthy. I had severe brain fog. Eliminating dairy and coffee (not caffeine, just coffee itself) has made me 70% better. I’ve been dealing with this for 4 years! I was also just diagnosed w/sleep apnea-I am not the person you think would have sleep apnea! It takes work but you have to do the elimination diet and figure out what’s affecting you. I get my CPAP this week and look forward to feeling even better! Do the work, it will make a huge difference in how you feel and you will be much more in tune with your body��

  • Great info Doc. I used a CPAP for years with a mask and then cannula style. I have no problems with either one, my issue was condensing moisture drowning me. So my buddy suggested putting the machine on the floor. That worked for a while until the temp starting dropping at night. Then I insulated the hose with fleece and keep the hose under the blanket….nope nothing worked. It did have a humidifier. I no longer use it….seems to be ok for me.

  • The only way I have combatted this: stop using computer after work. Go to sleep early early, like 8:00 so I get as much sleep as possible. Like 10 hours at least.

  • I was in hospital and the fellow across from me had c pap machine and it kept me awake all night, can’t imagine how bad it would be if I was wearing the darn thing, thank god I don’t have Sleep Apnea

  • 31 years? ��
    You look less than 25! ������
    I have your problema but do not take protein, it’s probably the food then. But good food os expensive in my country and you don’t earn enough to aford good food!

  • Yup this has been my problem for a while. Always one of my nostrils are clogged when I sleep, no exceptions. I’ve tried propping my head up, humidifier none of dat shit work. Now I’m on an elimination diet eating basically only meat and eggs.

  • QUESTION:New here SUNLIGHT literally puts me to sleep. I tried working dayshift for over a year but same.been a nite owl since birth.like now sun just came up blinds open vitD.but I’m being put t0 sleep.I’ve never heard of anyone talk of this before or mabey u can refer me to anther vid? Please REPLY

  • I snore so loud before and my spouse does not enjoy it so he suggested this sleeping apnea treatment to me. I never had any breathing concerns after doing the therapy and snored not really much with the assistance of this sleep apnea treatment “amam fetching site” (Google it)..

  • I have cpap,sleep apnea,I’m MORE exhausted on the cpap having a day time study next week omg when does it end I can’t get up and do as I should in life also 150 lbs over weight also been through alot of sleep parlysys before the cpap

  • I was diagnosed with M.A.D.S.A.M. along with obstructive sleep apena at the Mayo Clinic. I’m using a cpap and though it helps, I’m still fatigued. Currently undergoing I.V.I.G. infusions.

  • Excellent Video clip! Sorry for chiming in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you heard about Parlandealey Active Life Process (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? It is a good one of a kind product for learning how to stop feeling tired without the headache. Ive heard some super things about it and my m8 at last got cool success with it.

  • Why exactly do people think every form of insomnia is from sleep apnea? It’s such a random condition to blame insomnia on. I’ve never really understood it.

  • Wow! This hit very close to home. Just started CPAP, and I have Hashimoto’s dx in 2014. I have a hard time staying awake, so still fine tuning my meds. I hope I can start feeling even better.

  • Hi Doc, your looking gorgeous as per usual my wife can get disruptive at night is there anything she can take so she will not disturb me��

  • I NEED YOUR HELP!!! I got my sleep results today from my home sleep study.. My AHI was a 3.. I had 9 apneas and 10 hypopneas.. My RI is 6.6 and my odi is a 3.6 my lowest saturation was 81 my lowest pulse was 48 and my highest 168.. The number of desaturations is 32.. I am tired thru out the day… I’m gaining weight by eating more trying to get energy.. I wake up a few times thru out the night and when I wake up my throat is DRY!! But because my ahi isn’t 5 I don’t qualify for cpap!! I’m so lost on what to do next.. I sleep on a wedge pillow but that doesn’t help I slide down during the night.. I flush my nose before bed.. I don’t eat before bed I try to do everything and yet I’m stuck.. Plz help!!! Thank u

  • I’m in the same boat right now. I can sleep 14 hours or more every day and I’m still very tired. I have low testosterone but apparently its not low enough to treat. I’m getting blood work for my thyroid this week and also another sleep study so we’ll see how that goes. Great video as usual.

  • you are great…….im in…. i took a sinthroid for sarcadouses….thyroid shit just like u. well i just want to know if what happen to me happened to u. i had the worst allergies known too man, i dreaded sping, summer and fall. but after getting off my sin meds for 6 months my allergies left too….wow..i have not been on your site forum but i will. im just naturally lazy lol. im just amazed that your not gaining more ppl to your vids. there are so many ppl that don’t even know they have apnea….truly is amazing….i have it…and my father who is 76 years old just started his cpap.?….my wife has apna ( but i sleep so well i don’t hear her hehehe) and iv told her she needs a machine also…know im finding out most of the ppl around me are starting to wake up ( no pun intended) to the fact that they may have an issue with sleep. it is the most important life changing event once they realize ( by testing) they are deprived of REAL sleep. im in Canada and our government has made it one of there top priority to fix the problem. example it cost me $50 after provincial and fed funding for a 2k cpap machine which they will replace after 5 years of use…lol. the inc company are jumping on board because it keeps ppl of disability and more productive. (social Medicare is not bad) any how thanks for all your help…your a fun guy to watch and thank you for being at what i think is just the start of a growing trend to better health and awareness….sweat dreams my friend…:-)

  • Hi Doctor Sam my wife stops breathing for 27 secs at times is big snorer but she doesnt believe me. I am thinking she will have a stroke soon. I have recorded her but she thinks im full of it.

  • This was brilliant, thank you so much! Valuable info and very well-presented. Great accent by the way!:-)
    4 of my symptoms are/were: (1) frequent irresistible drowsiness during the day, (2) absent-mindedness, (3) dizziness, & (4) inability to concentrate. Since (a) using a lower pillow & (b) changing my diet, these symptoms have lessened considerably, so maybe my probable apnoea I haven’t had a test but I scored rather high on the questionnaire has diminished?
    I have been keeping a ‘foods & their effects’ diary to help identify which foods I feel sleepy/bloated/discomfort after, and in case it may be helpful to others, these are the changes I made to my diet:
    (1) eat less;
    (2) don’t eat late in the evening better to skip the meal;
    (3) eat fruit/veg instead of the usual snacks/meals as much as possible.
    I have been doing this for 10 days and have lost over a kilo (most of it from my belly apparently), have no desire now for junk food, a much reduced desire for alcohol, a slight increase in libido (etc), am more alert & for longer during the day, and for the first time in years? wake feeling noticeably more energetic & motivated. Two weeks ago I don’t think I would or could have written this…
    Thanks again Dr Sam!

  • Sadly I must stop watching ‘Dr. Sam Bailey’ on YouTube. I’ve been suffering/enjoying ‘Samapnea’ the doctor makes me breathless {and, hot and sweaty}. I thought that I was over ‘all that’! There’s no fool like an old fool. Old Timer’s disease? Many years ago {at a party} an extremely senior boss in a major US corporation told me that he had severe asthma. I said that I was dreadfully sorry, because he’d never be able to visit Hong Kong, or, Rio de Janeiro. He was nonplussed, and, had to ask me why. “The views are so beautiful they’d take your breath away”, I replied. Two weeks later I was promoted! Medical conditions are no laughing matter? But, without laughter there’s no ‘point’? I’ve travelled so much that I’ve had numerous doctors. 90%’ish were great. Allegedly Maria Callas died of a ‘broken heart’. Is that shorthand for severe depression, and, physical sequelae? I do not like mumbo-jumbo, but, Shirley, the human ‘mind’ is infinitely more interesting than the plumbing/nuts and bolts? I’ve had a great 4 days watching your vids. Next I’m going to watch YouTube’s ‘Ran Sailing’, and, ‘Sail Life’; followed by ‘The West Wing’, boxed set. Then, a long walk to the pub. Cheers.

  • Dear Dr. Sam, how about a talk on sleeping pills. As I have got older, and especially with the covid-19 epidemic, I am sleeping badly. Sleeping pills seem to range from Schedule 5 prescription to over the counter homeopathic. I would appreciate some guidance on how to choose.

  • I have severe OSA. I’ve tried everything. Health was getting worse and worse. Finally found a few things that work to eliminate it for me completely. I now have 0 apnea’s and I put in a lot of time to figure this out. Hope it helps someone struggling out there. 1. Sleep on a slight incline (pillows, wedge or raise head of bed 6 inches), 2. critical to always sleep on side, 3. I use a boil and bite mandibular advancement device off of Amazon $50 (this is the best thing I’ve found to remedy my OSA) 4. No coffee/tea (my apnea’s have always been much worse if I do). The best thing I’ve found to normalize the horrible feeling from a Sleep Apnea Hangover (i call it) is Wim Hof Method guided breathing(YouTube or the WHM app) It takes 15 minutes and it completely re-oxygenates the body and brain to reverse the damage from oxygen deprivation through the night. Sometimes I’ll do 45 minutes and it’s fantastic. It brings back a healthy and calm state of being for the rest of the day. I was in such a fog and had a ton of anxiety from OSA for years until I tried it. Gave up on cpap after a year and a half last year and I’ve finally discovered these things that work for me. Hope it helps someone out there! Cheers!

  • My room mate has no problem sleeping, he sleeps soundly all night, literally SOUNDLY, his snoring stops me from getting any sleep, I try to put on headphones and playing music, but its so hard to sleep with those on

  • I told my doctor that my cpap mask got a lot more comfortable when I put Bourbon in the humidifier of the cpap, She laughed, her fellow doctors ask “is he really doing that, She had to calm them down, any body reading this do not to it, it is dangerous.

  • I had this through my twenties and early thirties. Use to jump out of the bed in slow motion to get to the light switch ��. I’d kind of be awake but couldn’t move, then break into this slow motion dash for the light switch. Not sure if it’s the same thing your talking about here ��‍♂️ I was never over 9 stone in them days and 6 foot tall ��

  • Isn’t she so sweet. She is so good. These videos are obviously geared to non-medial people. That’s a good thing by the way. I just watch her because she is so sweet! If I lived in New Zealand she would be my primary care doctor. Also l, Dr. Brad l. if I can give him a plug. He is from there as well. I have to get to New Zealand to see if everyone is as nice as these two!!

  • Many thanks indeed Dr Sam. I was very surprised to hear that under active thyroid is one health problem that can be a cause of sleep apnoea! �� However, given all other symptoms I don’t think I have it. A great video though, thanks so much

  • I appreciate your willingness to share but you still drink Coffee. I will be straight up with you in that Coffee is not good for your body and especially for sleep. I realize some people talk about how coffee might be good for them but they never talk about the long list of bad things for you. If you care about what goes in your body stop drinking Coffee. Coffee affects stomach acids including HCI and the acid/base equilibrium in your body. Coffee is a diruretic and upsets water balance in body, affects fatty acids and blood sugar negatively, increases atherosclerosis, evidence to suggest increase in tumors, linked to duodenal ulcers, along with it contributing to carcinoma and especially pancreas cancer. Furthermore, caffeine is a toxin and its addictive and you shouldn’t be taking things in your body and make you addicted to that substance. Coffee has fooled many people in this country and best to stay away from it.

  • Am watching this like at night 2:55

    Because I can sleep it’s so hard so I hard to search up sleeping Apnea’s to see now if
    I have.

    It just feel like am going to pass out and my body is heavy and I keep drinking water a lot

  • Sundar is jealous of real beauty, he has instructed his Guideline Girls to not allow subbed channels operated by it to be notified to subbers on rec list. I haven’t recieved a notice of a new vid by you yet. I hope you don’t end up like Jenna Marbles and ran off the system. As always, informative, professional and wonderful to watch.

  • Hi Dr Sam, yes please do a video about snoring. This is a real issue with me although I am not obese. I workout and exercise regularly. I don’t smoke or drink alcohol. I am not on any medications. My BMI is approximately 27 and slightly higher than “healthy” as I carry more muscle mass than the average male as I workout with heavy weights. Is snoring treatable without resorting to meds or surgery?

  • I have a cpap machine with humidifier some nights i get a good nights sleep other night i wake up and my mouth is so dry my lips are stuck to my teeth and dont have any saliva so i take the mask off I contacted the doctor brought the machine in to have him check it out he shut the humidifier off don’t really need in summer he also said I was wearing it to tight that it wasupposed to leak tried it out for three nights was ok then it started drying me up again does anybody out there have this problem?

  • Sleep apnea is a man made sickness, is a something that occurs natural to everyone including babies and animals,is completely normal and no one dies from it except if your partner shuts you because of your snoring

  • My wife said I have sleep apnea but I have an enlarged goitre and polyps on my vocal chords and I am70 my wife wakes me up because she says I stop breathing.

  • Thanks for the helpful information. I did LOL when you mentioned that there are alarms available to help you sleep on your side. Sort of like automated sleep apnea:)

  • I tried the dental appliance. It was not happening for me. It didn’t really change anything about my sleep, either. Thanks for the great info as always!

  • Doc, just brilliant, I just know that everyone who watches this wishes their Dr was half as good as you. For more than 40 years I went periodically to various doctors complaining about my feet going numb. I gave blood, found nothing and was send away. Then 3 years ago my arch collapsed while playing football and still took another 8 months for a podiatrist and not a doctor to diagnose Charcot. I bet if you were my Dr, you would have diagnosed on my first trip and something would have happened. Once we perfect cloning, I would like to recommend you are cloned and replace all Dr’s. You are absolutely brilliant Doc. Thank you. PS, I am still not diabetic and it still confuses doctors that I am not yet I have Charcot. Go figure.

  • Good Day Dr Sam, about a month ago I thought that I was developing sleep apnea because I was having trouble getting to sleep. I would be exhausted and started falling asleep in my chair and then I would lay down and I could not fall asleep. I could not get comfortable and would spring up wide awake. Then the process would repeat. Eventually I would pass out from exhaustion. I plan to discuss it with my Doctor next time I see her mid August. I personally think that it was just the stress of what is going on in the U. S. A. both politically and medically. But for the last 3 weeks, no problem sleeping yet those other things still exist. After I see my Dr I will let you know what happens. Love your channel. I would tell you to be safe but N Z seems to have got it right. ������✌

  • Thank you as always for breaking down and clearly explaining things. Could you do a video on over active and under active thyroid?

  • I like the same thing about all the video.
    1. You 2. How you present the info. 3. The huge smiles. 4 ypur accent. 5. Your hair. 6. The way you call your words and the way your lips form each word so carefully. 7. Beautiful friendly eyes. 8. Beautiful set of teeth and the color of your lip stick. 9. The soothing tone of your voice that makes everything you say sounds so beautiful. 10. Finally your so warm friendly and I wish you lived next door������������������������������������������������������������������

  • Omggggggggg it’s been protein for me the whole time I knew it I had some doubts at first but then I was like nah can’t be it but u just made me sure thank u I’m bout try this method out

  • The major problem that happens in diagnosis is a prejudice of who can have it. So the patient or doctor will dismiss that diagnosis suggestion. And go on a wild goose chase. Hunting down the source, for sometimes years. To be told tenths of times, you came back negative. This can cause heart failure. By the time you decide to check out sleep apnea. Because sleep apnea is associated with old people and or obese. But sleep apnea does not discriminate. You could be young and fit, there’s different types of it.

  • I’ve been using a CPAP for the last 22 years. I swear by it. I wouldn’t attempt to sleep without it. Problems may arise if you have power outages during the night. Not funny.
    Talking of surgery, there is a way of “rectifying” the problem by making an incision (at the back of the throat) and “infecting” the said incision in order to create a scar. By creating a scar you tighten the tissue and the result is mostly successful. However, this minor operation has an extremely painful healing process. Needless to say, I chickened out.
    This Video is 100% accurate…symptoms, causes, remedies… Thanks.

  • Sometimes I have trouble falling asleep after watching your videos. You fill us with happy adrenaline ����. But most of the time I just fall asleep straight away with a smile on my face because your so humble and radiant. ��.

  • How were you able to figure out that you should take Whey Protein out of your diet, especially considering that it commonly is a very healthy alternative to other foods out there? I personally would have never thought to take that out of my diet

    Great video btw.

  • I don’t know whether you’ve covered this subject but why do some people get sleep paralysis? I have had it in the past and it’s frightening.

  • Thank you for all your different topics…they are always excellent to listen to…your very informative and I have to say your accent drives me absolutely crazy.!! ��Thank you for all you do.

  • I use a CPAP for 4 to 5 hours every night, and I wake up having to fart like crazy, because of all of the extra air I have to expel from my body.

  • Oiy. I needed to see this today. I saw my sleep specialist yesterday and she said that my CPAP and levels are completely normal so nothing needs to be adjusted. But my husband says that I snore really loudly through my CPAP every night. And I’m still ridiculously exhausted every single day and feel like I’m just in a cloud. I was even tested for narcolepsy was told that I have excessive daytime sleepiness but not narcolepsy. She prescribed me modafinil and I am on the highest dose in the morning and then another half dose in the afternoon but I can still manage to take a nap or just feel cloudy all day long. I also have PC OS and I know that that can also cause some fatigue and I am on antidepressants and anxiety medicine which probably isn’t helping either. It is just so hard to function every single day but I’ve been told that my thyroid levels are normal and just to deal with it.

  • Dr. Bailey, further to my post on infant bottle-feeding, in how it can affect the airway for life, please find below the link to an interesting study on how CPAP raises intracranial pressure. Such a rise in pressure, it is argued, leads to a raising of intraocular pressure which of course would mean that CPAP might be contraindicated in patients who have glaucoma. �� David ����

  • i have been struggling with “excessive daytime sleepiness” since i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia at the age of 16, i am 28 now. I have done three hospital sleep studies with no luck other than “you have sleep apnea.” The doctor im seeing now said “ok well lets do another sleep study because your last one was 5 years ago and things have changed a lot since then.” So im like wouldn’t hurt. see my doctor after my sleep study was done and he said ” you have some of the worst sleep apnea i have ever seen.. you stop breathing about 191 times an hour! so i have been on my new cpap machine for about two months now and still see no relief in my daytime sleepiness… Hoping that my next appointment will at least put me down the right path.

  • Many thanks for your explanation of OSA, Dr Bailey.

    �� You might also be interested in the following information on infant airway malformation which can lead to OSA (and SIDS), which is the result of research into the possible effects of infant bottle-feeding done by the late anatomy professor Edmund Crelin Jr. and the late dentist Dr Brian Palmer. Below is a summary of how I understand their work. The website of Dr Palmer’s is also included; and in the study which Dr Palmer mentions on the first page that you would access, it can be seen just how common the problem of the modern airway is in the community (in children and adults alike).

    Intensive infant bottle-feeding can reshape the soft, malleable bones of the upper airway of the baby. The implosive force of bottle-feeding, if such feeding were intense and of considerable frequency and duration, can cause the hard palate of the baby to rise and narrow, resulting in the modern high-arched hard palate and narrowed dental arch. With such a malformation, the end result is a reduction in the size of the posterior nasal cavity, since the roof of the mouth is also the floor of the nasal cavity. (This malformation can also include a deviating of the nasal septum.)

    As the respiratory drive is dictated by the sleep phase, and with the soft palate still connected to the tongue prior to the epiglottis and tongue’s eventual natural descent, the very young infant essentially relies on nasal breathing only. (The connection of the soft palate and tongue allows a baby in the first months of life to breathe through the nose and swallow breastmilk at the same time, this being the ‘obligate nasal breathing’ which Palmer talks about in his website.) Certain phases of sleep again, all of which dictate the respiratory drive can only mean that an inferior-sized posterior nasal cavity is not going to serve to allow for an efficacious exchange of gases, which can then lead to the onset of a Central or obstructive apnoeic event in the case of SIDS.

    Crelin and Palmer also discuss how intensive infant bottle-feeding can draw the epiglottis down too low into the pharynx during the epiglottis’ natural descent phase. Since the epiglottis’ secondary function is to brace the back of the tongue, particularly during sleep, tongue-base obstruction is a further concern for SIDS and sleep-disordered breathing. This phenomenon can also be compounded by an inefficacious pneumatic pressure above, caused by the inferior-sized posterior nasal cavity.

    The action of breastfeeding involves a peristaltic action of suck without implosion, so it is far safer than infant bottle-feeding, depending on the frequency, intensity and duration of the individually bottle-fed infant. Understandably, of course, not all mothers are physically able to breastfeed.

    Finally, the way to prove that infant bone of the oral cavity can be remoulded, is to simply conduct studies of newborns in a hospital setting prior to any exposure to the baby bottle: A quick check for cleft palate can include looking at the hard palate for any elevation and narrowing. In accordance with the Palmer research, there should not be any malformation that would be typical of the modern palate as described.

  • Thanks for this video! I have Hashimoto’s and it is one of the reasons why I have sleep apnea. It is a struggle. I am still in the puttering out stage, so I have to adjust RX every now and then. Glad to see you have adjusted. Thanks for all the reviews. I have tried at least 4 different masks with your help. Why doesn’t someone just sell a molding kit so that we can have a custom fit?

  • Excellent. I have sleep apnea and developed Afib. It is important to have treatment. Dr. Sam again has brought this to everyone’s attention and as always did an A++ presentation on the subject. I anxiously await her weekly topics. Her smile and spirited presentation style is a homeopathic treatment in itself.

  • Hello Dr. Sam again. So nice to see your videos! Interesting, luckily I dont suffer from sleep apnea but I snoar. If I turn on my side the snoaring stops, but to do that someone must wake me up to stop the racket. So I will welcome a video on snoaring suppression. My best regards to you!

  • hi i have found that cpap is the best for me, i found out i had sleep apnea only after having a heart attack, stopping breathing 140 times per night put pressure on my heart, cpap has been wonderful for my health and after 10 years with a mask at night i am used to it, thanks for your video

  • What about CPAP? I suffered mild sleep apnea for about 25 years undiagnosed and got a sleep study which revealed as suspected a mild sleep apnea syndrom. But I don’t get it sometimes I get more tired using cpap machine than without it. The mattress you use is also a focal point for a quality sleep. I don’t drink and don’t smoke and surgeons are against surgery. My throat morphlogy is the main cause of my sleep apnea, small mouth and backward jaw which prevents the airflow.

  • I was diagnosed with sleep apnea a couple years ago. I asked my HMO if it could be the fact I never had my tonsils removed and they don’t seem to believe that this is the problem or they just want to sell equipment and all that. Do you know how to get an exam for that (tonsils) and I did snore really loud according to others so I probably do have it but it is a pain going on trips and dragging along stuff. Love your videos. Thanks for taking the time to educate us

  • My sleep apnea is so severe……I need help and scared to even get it…I’m a mom that takes care of her kids and her husband is trying…….I wish I can find help

  • Thank you! Another professional & informative video. You’re right about maintaining a healthy weight. Being a normal weight is so important for all aspects of good health. Your wisdom & video are very appreciated.

  • Ha! I was born with it and no diagnosis until I graduated high school. That’s right, first 18 years of my life gone. I stopped breathing over 1000 times a night for almost 40 seconds. It is not always genetic. Always go for your own body type and find out if you must lose weight first. Although a CPAP can help, do not be so set into a mask first. There is more than one option.

  • The cure for Covid19 is Hydroxychloraquine plus Azithromycin and zinc. Proven treatment by frontline doctors in America also in France. We have been lied to people our politicians are with the Deep State.
