We already know that obstructive sleep apnea can cause stroke, but can it can also cause central sleep apnea, MS, or even Alzheimer's? How can it lead to various other unexpected conditions such as migraines, headaches, dizziness, lightheadedness, various stomach ailments, and even ringing, hearing loss, or vertigo?

Dr. Park,

I would have so loved to participate in this seminar, but a college course conflicts with this.
Will a recorded Podcast be available ?

I think that OSA may also be a factor in fibromyalgia, at least for some number of fibromyalgia victims.--.
I attended Dr. Park's webinar last night and found if very informative. The affect that sleep apnea has on the brain and it's function was most interesting. I am curious to know more though about the affects of low Progesterone levels. Does anyone have any info on this subject?
Progesterone acts as an upper airway muscle dilator or stimulant. Specifically, the genioglossus muscle (your tongue) loses muscle tone as progesterone slowly drops (before a woman's periods and during menopause). This is why HRT can be helpful in many women. The estrogen to progesterone ratio has to be balanced. Some peri-menopausal women use OTC progesterone creams with success.

Thank you Dr. Park,
At last check my Progesterone levels were low (due to Peri-menopause) I was prescribed Prometrium (100mg) to regulate my periods. I take it SID x14 days.
I will share this info with my Gynecologist at my next visit.
