Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)

APPOMATTOX, VA (WWBT) - Christopher Marshall is dealing with obstructive sleep apnea.

Symptoms include chronic fatigue, especially if you wake up just as tired as when you went to bed.

Try and lose weight. Avoid alcohol or sleeping medications as they can both make OSA worse. Certain hormone therapies can also do this.

OSA can lead to heart problems as well as reduced quality of life by way of chronic fatigue.
