People who snore notice they often feel tired and even excessively sleepy during the daytime – even after a full night’s sleep.
Whether you are a snorer or you sleep next to one, it can negatively impact your health, personal and professional life.
Snoring can be a symptom of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). It affects people of all ages, particularly people who snore, are middle aged or older, are above a healthy weight and have family members with OSA.
OSA is a medical condition that occurs when you’re sleep and the muscles at the back of the throat relax too much. The throat becomes partly or completely blocked, due to the tongue and soft palate collapsing onto the back of the throat. Breathing can stop for up to 90 seconds before you wake up. These episodes may occur many times a night, so you often feel exhausted the next day. OSA is often undiagnosed, because sufferers are asleep while it’s happening.
The snoring can lead to chronic sleep apnoea, causing oxygen levels in the bloodstream to drop. This has been linked to serious health outcomes ranging from fatigue, issues with memory and concentration, headaches all the way to heart disease and high blood pressure and mental health impacts.
