What Type of Snorer Are You?
Choosing the right treatment to solve your snoring problem means knowing a little about why you snore, how you snore and what makes your snoring worse. Let us help you understand what is going on and how snoring relief aids help you treat the cause of your snoring.
Snoring might seem to you like the problem itself. But really, it is only the most obvious symptom of a much more serious underlying problem. The root cause of snoring is ‘sleep disordered breathing’. The only effective way to stop your snoring is to treat the root cause.
Regular snoring can be very loud with more impact on the sleep of your partner than on yours. The main cause of this type of snoring is dehydration and relaxed airways that collapse in on themselves when you sleep. This allows the soft lining of the airways to vibrate causing the rasping sound of snoring.
Allergy, Cold and Blocked Nose Snoring
A blocked nose, cold or allergy and make you snore at certain times of the year. Allergic reactions to dust, pollen, animal material or a virus causes nasal congestion that restricts airflow through the nasal passages. Congestion can cause you to breathe your mouth drying your throat and increasing the vibrations that lead to snoring.
Snoring caused by interrupted breathing whilst sleeping
If you are suffering daytime tiredness or sleepiness during the day, or if your loud and sudden snoring frequently wakes your partner, you might be suffering the sleep related breathing disorder, sleep apnoea. The most common form of sleep apnoea, obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), is caused when lack of muscle tone in the upper airway allows it to collapse, or when the soft palate at the back of the throat partially or fully closes the airway. If you experience any of these symptoms your doctor will be able to talk to you about the available treatments.
Seasonal, occasional or now-and-again snoring
Some snoring is difficult to label or tie down to a particular time or cause. It might be you only snore when you have got a cold or had too good a night out, sleep in a strange bed or place. There might be a number of factors causing your snoring, but they are probably all made worse by nasal congestion and dryness in your throat.
