You snore when parts of your throat vibrate while you are sleeping. It indicates that something is interfering with your breathing. While snoring is common, and often frustrating to your household, it can be a sign of a more serious health problem.
Why do I snore?
There are many reasons why people snore. These include:
being overweight or obese
a cold, sinus or allergy problems
sleeping on your back
If you snore and are often sleepy during the day, you may have obstructive sleep apnoea. Obstructive sleep apnoea happens when breathing is either stopped or reduced during sleep because of a narrowing or blockage of the upper airway. It causes loud snoring and occasional apnoea (stopping breathing).
Obstructive sleep apnoea is a serious health problem that needs attention. Apart from making you tired, it can reduce your concentration and increase your risk of health problems including high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke and heart attack. It can also lead to motor accidents because drivers fall asleep.
If your child is snoring it maybe because their tonsils are enlarged or they are overweight.
You should talk to a doctor if your snoring is irritating you and your household, or you wake up gasping or choking. In some cases, they may recommend an overnight sleep study to check for causes.
How can I stop?
There are many different things you can try to stop storing. Avoiding alcohol close to bedtime, sleeping on your side, treating allergies, losing weight and increasing exercise can help. Nasal strips or other devices to keep your mouth open or tongue positioned properly while you’re asleep may help. In specific cases, surgery may be required. If your snoring is caused by sleep apnoea, you may need a device that blows air into your nose or mouth while you’re sleeping.
If your child snores because they have enlarged tonsils, your doctor may suggest anti-inflammatories to reduce the size of their tonsils, or surgery to remove their adenoids and tonsils.
