before I started working in the medical field, I never heard of it. then my ex bf came along. after a year of living together, he woke up gasping for air which made me shoot up and nearly crap my pants out of fear. he wasn't overweight, or a smoker, but had nasal polyps which interfered with his breathing passageways. of course he never really had a great nights sleep, and refused to do anything about it. don't let that happen! go to the pulmonary specialists for a sleep study. it really is a serious problem!
