There are literally millions of people around the world that deal with some form of sleep apnea or the other every year, and by some estimates, almost one in five people will suffer from a sleep related disorder at some point in their lifetime. In developed western countries, this number goes as high as one in four people. All this is cold comfort, however, if you are one of those four people who is suffering from the sleep related disorder. The problem with sleep related disorders is that they have adverse effects on almost all areas of your life, since if you are not getting a good night’s sleep during the night, your entire day will be ruined as you will have symptoms like: low energy levels, drowsiness, lethargy and the tendency to fall asleep during the day. You will also find it very hard to actually get to sleep when you are in bed at night.
To all these sleep apneas and sleep related disorders, there have always been two methods of dealing with them. The first is just to live with them and hope that they are caused by some temporary factors, such as a stressful situation that will resolve itself or get sorted out in due time. The other course is to start visiting sleep specialists and sleep clinics to get treatment and medication in the hope of diagnosing and treating as well as curing your sleep related disorder. The problem with both the courses of action is that they do not actually give you relief, just give temporary relief from the symptoms.
A more permanent solution and one that has worked for thousands of people is an adjustable bed. If you have already spent a lot of money on doctors and treatment, you can get second hand adjustable beds at Amazon.com or eBay.com. The best place, however, to buy second hand beds as well as mattresses is at the craigslist mattress for sale section of your local Craigslist.org site.
