We�ve all been in this situation before. How many nights have you spent tossing and turning because your partner wouldn�t stop snoring like a Mac truck? Or many you are at the �giving� end rather than the �receiving� end � you feel embarrassed because you just can�t stop snoring at night? Though this may be a very common thing, sometimes snoring can be an indication that something is not quite right with you. Whatever the case may be, snoring can deprive you of a good night�s sleep.
You may feel tired and irritated during the day because of snoring the whole night. Yet this only one of the minor effects that snoring may have. More serious repercussions may be high blood pressure, sleep apnea, or even brain damage! What causes snoring anyway? It is basically caused by some obstruction in the breathing passage. This obstruction vibrates to cause the sound.
What can you do about your snoring � or your partner�s for that matter? Well the best course for you to take would be to go see the doctor, especially if the snoring is chronic and results in you waking up intermittently throughout the night. There may be a serious underlying cause or it may be a simple case of sleeping position or your pillows. Whichever the cause may be, you will be safer knowing what the problem is. Only when the doctor gives a diagnosis will you be able to determine the specific treatment options available to you. Then you can look forward to a good night�s rest!
