Do I Have UARS?
UARS is extremely common in older women, though it has been shown to affect men and women equally. One French study found that of those with chronic insomnia and daytime fatigue, nearly half had Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome. Other characteristics UARS patients typically display include having a narrow jaw or face, having a thin neck, low blood pressure, cold hands or feet, the inability to sleep on your back.
UARS is new so many doctors are unfamiliar with the condition or how to diagnose it. The best way to find out if you are suffering form UARS is to find a sleep center that is familiar with the disorder and has the necessary equipment to diagnose it.
