Three times this week, people have asked me if I have ESP. If they are in front of me, their eyes open wide and with a scary look and they asked me, “Do you have ESP?” I assured them that I do not. In all three situations, I had just asked these people questions from a list of common symptoms that people with airway resistance syndrome have. Some of these symptoms include: sleeping on their side or stomachs, never waking up refreshed, cold hands or feet, occasional dizziness or lightheadedness, frequent headaches, and a parent that snores heavily. More often than not, the parent that snores also has a complication of untreated obstructive sleep apnea such as hypertension or heart disease.
These list of symptoms are so consistent that I stopped asking if either of their parents snore, or which position they sleep in—their back, side or stomach. Instead, I now ask, which parent snores, or do you sleep on your side or stomach? Sure enough, about 99 % of the time, they’ll answer one or the other.
Do you have any of the symptoms that I described above?
