Sleep apnea patients have their REM sleep stage disrupted. During REM the brain is very active and the body is very immobile. The development of learning occurs during REM especially with infants.
REM is also a time when men have erections. Some suggest that sleep apnea’s disruptions have an adverse effect on men achieving erections when you are awake. Also if you look at the common causes of ER you will see some of the illnesses that can be caused by sleep apnea.
Medications can help with the erectile dysfunction as well as losing weight and exercising. Of course sleep apnea can be helped with the use of the cpap machine and surgeries, which in turn will probably help with the erectile dysfunction.
