My partner is 20, fit and healthy and by no means overweight. If anything he is too thin.
He has pretty much every symptom of sleep apnea, such as being excessively tired during the day, sleeping all the time, incredibly enlarged tonsils, being very agitated during his sleep, snoring loudly and stopping breathing for 10 seconds or more, normally followed by a loud gasp for air.
Whilst he is 'holding his breath' so to speak, you can clearly see him struggling to breathe. Could this still be sleep apnea if he's nowhere near overweight?
