In the most common type of sweating, called apnoea-hypopnoea syndrome (AHS), a person develops an abnormally high level of carbon dioxide in his blood. This air is produced by the body’s muscle tissues during their contraction and relaxation, allowing them to move about. But when they suddenly relax back into a resting state, they release excessive quantities of gas that float around in the bloodstream until it reaches a point where it can no longer be stored safely – provoking AHS.
Why does sleep affect some people so much?
This depends on several factors: how long you have been sleeping for; your age; whether or not you are overweight/obese; how active you are as well as several other lifestyle choices such as diet and medicines.
