If you share a bed with someone who snores loudly, chances are you might not have a good night’s sleep. This, however, should be one of the least of your worries. Snoring could be a symptom of sleep apnea, which, in turn, may be a sign of something more disturbing, such as a stroke about to happen.
An article on MedPage Today suggests that sleep apnea treatments may not only reduce the risk of stroke, but may also ease the danger of irregular heartbeats. It cites a study from the New York University which found that recurrence of irregular heartbeats increases the chances of a stroke.
