 sleep apneas

        My apologies if this is the wrong forum for this.  I am not a
regular reader of this group.  I'm just popping by in the hopes to get
some help with a situation that my sister has.
        Basically, my sister has sleep apneas.  She gets what I would
call a seizure at night (sometimes).
        Would it be possible for someone to explaoin to me better what
this is.  Also, is it related to a seizure (California has a rule that
people who have seizures can't drive - even though this only happens
at night, she might still get stuck with this)?  Are there any
corrective measures?
        Thanks for any help.

                                        Pete

 sleep apneas
There are two basic kinds of sleep apneas: Central and Obstructive

Most of the sleep apneas seen in {*filter*}s are of the Obstructive type,
and have been associated with obesity, drinking, and smoking.

The central type is associated with Central Nervous System problems.
Seizures can be either a cause or a result of apnea. Your sister
should be evaluated by a specialist (neurologist or sleep apnea
study center).

Good luck!
