Snoring can be embarrassing and may disturb partners and people sharing a room. Snorers may not be aware of their snoring at first and it can go unnoticed for some time. When falling asleep, the muscle tissues in the nasopharyngeal region relax and start to flutter thus creating the snoring noise. Snoring may increase with increasing age and lifestyle changes (e.g. putting on weight, less activity). At times the snorer can wake during the night gasping for air, which may be the first sign of a much bigger problem - Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).
Snoring is often written off as a minor irritation that is often ignored, and rarely, if ever addressed
What we fail to realize is that snoring is socially unacceptable, a little annoying for you and more so for everyone around.
What's worse? Persistent Snoring i.e, Habitual Snoring/ Rhonchopathy over the course of time can lead to sleep apnea - a potentially serious sleep disorder.
One that could subsequently lead to other health complications such as hypertension, strokes, type-2 diabetes, liver problems, besides sleep deprivation that can affect your productivity at work.
Having a partner who snores doesn't test your patience but can negatively affect the health of your realtionship. Over time, it leads to frustration and resentment which could potentially cause intimacy issues.
