Sleep apnea occurs when the body periodically fails to breathe during sleep. Sleep apnea can be caused by a myriad of factors. However, no matter the cause, the result remains the same: Productivity and attentiveness plummet as a result.
Often times, the symptoms of sleep apnea are misdiagnosed as ADHD. This is dangerous as it could result in being wrongly treated and given medication for the wrong condition.
With so many shared symptoms, ADHD and sleep apnea are often misdiagnosed. Receiving false treatment can have a dangerous impact on your body and mind. That’s why it’s so important to ensure that the correct treatment is administered to those who are suffering from these symptoms.
