Letter: Obstructive Sleep Apnea


doi: 10.1097/01.NNN.0000421649.63887.59

One night I grabbed my Neurology Now magazine to learn more about multiple sclerosis. I could hear my husband, Todd, snoring upstairs—another night apart. I read “Your Neurologist Has Sleep Apnea” ( and mentally made check marks regarding obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) symptoms. I went upstairs, lay beside him, and counted to 40 between breaths. The next morning, we made an appointment with a doctor. Todd was diagnosed with severe OSA. I have no doubt this article saved his life and possibly our marriage. Weeks after using a CPAP, I see the years peel off my cowboy, and I am grateful beyond words
