Snoring Could Impact Your Relationships

tampa snoring treatmentWhen you snore on a nightly basis, this could mean you are not getting the proper sleep you need. This can also impact how your significant other rests, and leave you moody the next day. Instead of letting your sleep habits harm your relationships at night and in the day, talk to the experts at our Tampa, FL, sleep center!

The Impacts of Chronic Snoring

Snoring means that as you rest, your breathing is limited and this creates a loud, obnoxious sound. You are not receiving the deep and thorough rest needed, and this could also prevent your significant other from getting proper sleep too! During the day, your exhaustion could leave you moody and irritable, which further impacts your social interactions and quality of life. However, in addition to these concerns, chronic snoring could be linked to obstructive sleep apnea and with it, potential strain on your immune system and even your heart health!

Causes and Links to Sleep Apnea

We snore when our airways are partially obstructed by collapsed soft tissues. With sleep apnea, this collapse completely cuts off airflow. So, you stop breathing for a few seconds until the brain wakes you. Even if you do not remember this happening, this could be interrupting your REM sleep multiple times a night, so you are tired during the day and could have issues with concentration and memory. In addition, this could lead to issues with your immune system, making you more frequently ill. The stress on your heart health is linked to a higher risk of hypertension, heart disease, and even stroke or heart attack. Other issues include type-2 diabetes and obesity. Taking time to treat your snoring helps you and your loved one rest easier, and helps you feel more alert and functional the next day!
