: Anyone know if high altitudes affect the occurance of sleep apnia. Ever since I moved up-hill and I get a head cold I struggle. Do allergies play into this. During allergy season I have apnia. During non-allergy season I do not. I have always had a limited ability to pull air through my nose. ie I breathe almost uniquely through my mouth. I tried to see a docter but he failed to show up and have since lost my courage. I am of normal weight and currently do not smoke. Any insight/information would be of great help.
are you doing anything for the allergies? You should. Sleep Apnea is a contributing factor to heart failure and enlargement. It also does some brain damage.Mouth breathing is not good for your mental capacity and will slowly effect your thinking processes. See about the allergies and you may not have any more apnea.
