So while doing some research into AAS and high blood pressure, I came across this condition, sleep apnoea/apnea. Here is the description of what it is:
" Sleep apnea , also spelled sleep apnoea , is a sleep disorder where a person has pauses in breathing or periods of shallow breathing during sleep. Each pause can last for a few seconds to a few minutes and they happen many times a night. In the most common form, this follows loud snoring."
This caught my attention, as whenever I used AAS I was told my snoring was extremely loud. I attributed it to water retention causing slight edema in the lungs leading to difficulty breathing, however it could actually be this condition, which actually seems pretty serious.
This seems to be directly related to increased blood pressure, " Sudden drops in blood oxygen levels that occur during sleep apnea increase blood pressure and strain the cardiovascular system. Having obstructive sleep apnea increases your risk of high blood pressure ( hypertension )."
Is there anyone else that can relate to changes in breathing while asleep? Has your partner/family members noticed you snoring loudly or having periods of cut off breathing while asleep?
