As you probably known, sleep apnea occurs when the soft tissues of the neck and throat collapse intermittently during sleep leading to a disruption of breathing and, usually, multiple awakenings through the night. This typically produces excessive daytime fatigue even though the person with sleep apnea may have technically been in bed for a theoretically sufficient amount of rest. Sleep apnea is definitely more common in those who snore or who are overweight.

Similarly, alcohol and caffeine intake disruption sleep onset or sleep architecture and can be a major cause of insomnia
