Veterans plagued with sleep problems
from The Recorder
Air Force veteran John Paradis' snoring stutters like a chainsaw before he stops breathing. Paradis, 53, gasps for air, choking back to consciousness after his airways collapse over and over again throughout the night. He is fighting to get a full night's rest because he suffers from obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that stops his breathing more than 30 times every night. He wakes up and tosses and turns, until he rises groggy in the morning. Plagued with sleep problems since he returned from military duty in Iraq 12 years ago, Paradis finally received a diagnosis a month ago and is about to be fitted with an overnight breathing machine that is expected to relieve his symptoms.
