5 reasons you might not know about snoring

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Snoring is a fairly common sleep disorder. And, if in some cases, Jagdeep Bijwadia, who deals with sleep problems, explains to the Huffington Post, he simply appears from an uncomfortable position, then more often it turns out to be a signal indicating some kind of malfunction in the body.

We list 5 reasons why snoring may occur. The appearance of such a symptom is an occasion to contact a specialist who will help correct your condition.

Alcohol before bedtime

Fans of skipping a glass of wine at the end of a working (or weekend) day may think that they are not doing anything criminal. Skip the debate about the dangers or potential benefits of alcohol, focusing specifically on snoring. Alcohol relaxes the muscles of the respiratory tract, which can lead to severe snoring.

Strong snoring often prevents one from getting enough sleep, and therefore the next morning a person (and not just those who sleep with him in the same bed) feels overwhelmed and depressed.

Impaired breathing

Respiratory failure is a common cause of snoring. Violations may be associated with infection, allergies, or nasal septal defects. It’s easy to cope with something, but for some it may require not just medication, but surgery.

Wet cleaning can help solve problems, removing heavy curtains and fleecy carpets from the bedroom, where dust mites can provoke allergies.

Sleep on the back

The position you prefer during sleep also matters. It turns out that sleep lovers snore much more often than those who sleep on their stomach or on their sides. This is due to the fact that the tongue just sinks, narrowing the airways.

Snoring people often just ask to turn around or somehow change the position of the body so that they stop making these terrible sounds in a dream – in almost 90% of cases, this really helps.

Excess weight

People suffering from overweight , snore more often and stronger than those whose weight is normal. This is due to the fact that their neck muscles are not in good shape.

Special exercises to strengthen them, as well as standard techniques to help lose weight, can help.

Thyroid problems

Snoring is another reason to check the condition of your thyroid gland . Often it occurs if it is not active enough. Normalization of its work, taking appropriate drugs in a surprising way can reduce the level of snoring or completely relieve it.
