Sleep Apnea vs. Rheumatoid Arthritis  


North Branford, Connecticut, 1/27/13. One of root causes of the Rheumatoid Arthritis is the sleep apnea.


In the Last couple of weeks I discussed the root causes of Hypertension and Prostate Enlargement. I mentioned a sudden awakening because of an apnea in sleep could cause the relaxed muscles around the veins (blood vessels) and organs such as lungs and kidneys awake and awakened muscles squeeze the veins and organs, which causes more blood returns to the heart and the heart pumps out more blood to the arteries (supply blood vessels). More blood in arteries leads to a higher blood pressure spike. The brain senses the blood spike and commends the kidney to dump more water and sodium in blood to the bladder to regulate the blood pressure. The frequent apnea - awakening - urination cycles in night could result in a Prostate Enlargement. In another hand, the frequent apnea - awakening - blood pressure spike cycles could result in a Hypertension.


Today I would like to discuss another effect of the frequent apnea - awakening - blood pressure fluctuations. Each blood pressure spike caused by an awakening due to an apnea in sleep will result in a biological stress spike in arteries (blood vessels). The frequent awakenings due to apneas in sleep will cause a series of blood pressure spikes during sleep. The frequent significant blood pressure fluctuations will cause the biological stresses in blood vessels change frequently and dramatically.


The body autoimmune systems respond the frequent and significant changes of the stress with activating the immune systems to attack the tissues in blood vessels. The inappropriate reactions from the immune systems cause the blood vessel inflammations which triggers the autoimmune systems to attack the joints such as fingers, hands, elbows, knees, etc. and cause joint inflammations which are the typical symptoms of the rheumatoid arthritis (RA).


Therefore the sleep apnea could be one of the root cause of the rheumatoid arthritis. As soon as rheumatoid arthritis is triggered by sleep apnea, the treatment of the sleep apnea will not automatically heal the rheumatoid arthritis. However the treatment of the sleep apnea may reduce the strength and easier control of the rheumatoid arthritis. Earlier treatment of the sleep apnea will eliminate the blood vessels inflammation and hold the trigger to preventing from rheumatoid arthritis


There are several available treatments of sleep apnea, such as CPAP, BiPAP machines. Oral devices and surgeries. The oral devices are the most convenient and effective way to stop snoring and eliminate apnea in sleep. Kudo Health developed the Snorefighter mouthpiece for treatment of snoring and apnea. Its effectiveness is over 93%. Please click the "Home" above or " Snorefighter " for more information. I will also write an article on the treatments of sleep apnea later.


Inappropriate treatment of rheumatoid arthritis could be worsening the apnea in sleep, such as excessive usage of prednisone. I will specifically talk about this in the near future.
