Sleep apnea is a condition in which a person stops breathing while asleep, and then restarts breathing again. This happens because the muscles of the throat relax and block the air passage. So sleep is intermittent and you are mostly awake, rather than asleep.
Narcolepsy is a condition in which you would experience sudden sleep attacks at unusual hours, loss of muscle tone and really vivid hallucinations.
Shift work sleep is a disorder that hits the circadian cycle of people whose work schedule extends into their normal sleep hours.
