Snoring affects a large number of people around the world, including snorers themselves and their partners. Though nobody snores on purpose, that’s not to say that it isn’t a problem that desperately needs solving. Perhaps you’ve been told by family members that you snore or maybe you’ve woke yourself up by doing so. It may even be your sleeping partner that’s mentioned your snoring. Snoring comes in a range of different varieties and it could lead to you waking up in the middle of the night, struggling to breathe; this is referred to as sleep apnoea.
If you snore, you may feel as though you don’t get a good night’s sleep and you may feel constantly tired despite sleeping for eight hours at a time. This isn’t uncommon and it’s just another problem that snorers have to deal with.
What Causes Snoring?
Snoring is caused when the body’s soft palate vibrates or when the epiglottis restricts airflow; this is what creates the snoring noise and the breathing struggles that come with sleep apnoea. When the tissue at the back of your throat vibrates as you breathe throughout the night, a snoring noise is caused. This usually happens when you are laying on your back as this position encourages you to breathe through your mouth, which leads to you taking in more air than normal and snoring occurs.
