A Snoring Partner and a Death Wish

Have You Ever Felt Like Putting a pillow over your partners face whilst he or she is slepping deeply and you are still tossing and turning, trying to sleep through their snoring?

Although snoring can be so annoying that it has broken up marriages, it can also have some advantages, such as, if you’ve drank too much and passed out in a drunken stupor, your snoring, much to the annoyance of your partner, is an indication that you are still alive and not unconscious.


 
Snoring is described by the British Snoring Association as being a result of vibrations of the soft palate and other tissues in the areas of the mouth and throat with a blockage or restriction causing a turbulence in the airways, so as you sleep, your muscles cannot control the vibrations which in turn leads to snoring. Sometimes raising the top end of the mattress or the use of extra pillows can help eliminate the problem.
 
It is estimated that around 15 million people in the UK alone snore, with some snoring so loudly, it actually freaks out the neighbours which is great if you’ve been having problems with them, if not, your snoring can create a few problems with your continuing friendship and any murderous thoughts.
 
If you have ever had the privilege of sleeping next to a snorer, then you will know what it is like.  Having to put up with a snoring partner can be seriously frustrating, though obviously it does not affect the person doing the snoring.  Being constantly woken up in the middle of the night, rolling them over on to their side only for them to roll back an hour or so later can make one ready to commit murder, especially if it happens night after night. So, before you do something drastic, enquire about any medical reasons that may be causing this problem.

If a person stops breathing intermittently through out the night, it is called ‘sleep apnea’ which is a very serious condition, as people have died because they have failed to breathe again after stopping.  It is a very scary experience when you suddenly wake up because you’ve realized the person next to you has stopped snoring because he or she has stopped breathing. If you sense that your partner stops breathing in between their snoring then you need to encourage them to see a doctor as this condition can cause a number of health problems.

Losing weight can help alleviate snoring, propping up on a couple of pillows and not sleeping on your back are simple steps to take.
 
It can be quite embarrassing for a woman who snores especially if she tends to snore at high decibels. Either way, whether you are a male or female snorer, surveys show that it can be related to heart disease or strokes among other health risks and in addition to this, women who snore are 20% more likely to experience cardiac problems than those who don’t. So, for those of us who are umm …on the ‘cuddly side’, losing weight is the first step towards stopping snoring, with giving up the smokes coming in second place.  Not only will the snoring decrease, if not cease, we will or should feel heaps healthier!
