Among the most common types of ailments veterans are suffering from are sleep disorders. Both PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) have been found to increase the chances of a veteran developing some type of sleep disorder. Sleep's importance for a person's health is very underrated. But the truth is, if a person's sleep is affected by a sleep disorder, it can lead to other health problems in the future. For example, sleep apnea can lead to heart conditions. Sleep is very important and should not be brushed aside as unimportant.

Veterans With Sleep Disorders and Sleep Apnea
Any injury that affects a person's brain, whether actual blunt trauma through a physical injury (TBI) or psychological and mental disorders, can lead to a sleep disorder. There are a variety of sleep disorders out there, some of which include:
- Sleep apnea/obstructive sleep apnea
- Daytime somnolence
Sleep apnea is very serious and should not be taken lightly. This is a condition in which a person can actually stop breathing several times throughout the night. Eventually, this not only causes fatigue, but can affect a person's heart.
