When you sleep your tongue muscles are relaxed and so the tonguefalls backward and obstructs your breathing pattern thereby leading to heavy snoring or cessation of breathing for a brief period of up to 10 seconds. The next morning you may just wake up with a headache, furthermore, throughout the day you may feel drowsy.Sleep Apnoea in its severe form can occur up to thirty times in an hour.
