Sleep disorder symptoms can be confusing and even misleading: fatigue, depression, behavioral problems, slowed reaction times, loss of libido, lack of focus, and memory loss, among others.
And it doesn’t stop there. It’s estimated that up to 24,000 vehicular deaths each year can be attributed to drivers with sleep disorders. People with sleep apnea, a fairly common sleep disorder, are four times more likely to experience a stroke and three times more likely to have coronary disease and heart failure.
