Snor­ing “spoils” many people’s lives with its ter­ri­ble rat­tling, and not only those close to them, but also the snor­er him­self. Don’t make fun of some­one who snores or get annoyed by their vibrat­ing sounds. It is much bet­ter to look for the cause togeth­er and, when deter­min­ing it, choose the most effec­tive way to elim­i­nate it. After all, very often snor­ing can be a har­bin­ger of a seri­ous ill­ness, such as a stroke or myocar­dial infarc­tion, because the work of the heart wors­ens. Also, due to con­stant snor­ing, hor­mon­al dis­or­ders devel­op, hyper­ten­sion is aggra­vat­ed, and metab­o­lism is dis­turbed.

Snor­ing is a spe­cif­ic process with a dis­tinct vibrat­ing sound that accom­pa­nies a per­son­’s breath­ing through­out the night. By itself, snor­ing in women is no dif­fer­ent from men. But, if in men it is in most cas­es con­sid­ered a com­mon occur­rence, then snor­ing in women more often indi­cates a seri­ous prob­lem.

In addi­tion to sig­nif­i­cant dis­com­fort, snor­ing also caus­es oth­er trou­bles, up to a seri­ous fam­i­ly con­flict. Very rarely, a snor­er hears his “own vibra­tions”, which can­not be said about the sleep­ing per­son next to him. Annoy­ing rat­tling nois­es through­out the night can neg­a­tive­ly affect a loved one who shares a room or bed with a snor­er. Upon awak­en­ing, he will feel irri­ta­ble and tired. Indeed, when snor­ing, the vol­ume of sounds emit­ted can reach 112 dB.

Causes of snoring

Causes of snoring

The caus­es of snor­ing dif­fer from case to case. Very often it occurs in peo­ple with some air­way defects. Mal­oc­clu­sion, nar­row­ness of the nasal pas­sages, elon­ga­tion of the pala­tine uvu­la, all these patholo­gies are con­gen­i­tal, often lead­ing to snor­ing. If changes are detect­ed, the doc­tor will select the nec­es­sary cor­rec­tive treat­ment, up to surgery. Snor­ing in women can be caused by excess weight, the pres­ence of ade­noids or polyps in the nose, defects in the nasal sep­tum (for exam­ple, its cur­va­ture), as well as enlarged ton­sils.

The tone of the pha­ryn­geal mus­cles is neg­a­tive­ly affect­ed by smok­ing, drink­ing alco­hol, abuse of sleep­ing pills, lack of sleep or fatigue, etc.

There are many rea­sons for snor­ing. It often affects over­weight peo­ple. Overeat­ing, espe­cial­ly at night, neg­a­tive­ly affects not only the gen­er­al con­di­tion of the body or the qual­i­ty of sleep, but also the con­di­tion of the diaphragm. Exces­sive food intake puts pres­sure on it, which results in poor breath­ing and bow­el func­tion. It has been proven that with a weight loss of at least 10%, breath­ing dur­ing sleep improves.

Snor­ing often occurs when the wrong pos­ture dur­ing the night rest, espe­cial­ly on the back. In this posi­tion, the tongue can sink, which con­tributes to the vio­la­tion of the breath­ing process. To pre­vent the tongue from sink­ing in and, accord­ing­ly, snor­ing, it is rec­om­mend­ed to slight­ly raise the head­board.

Alco­hol abuse can lead to snor­ing and sleep apnea because alco­holic drinks relax the mus­cles in the throat.

With nar­row air­ways, there is also a seri­ous risk of stop­ping breath­ing dur­ing sleep.

Smok­ing can also cause snor­ing, as a result of irri­ta­tion of the mucous mem­branes of the throat and nose with tobac­co smoke. This can con­tribute to the devel­op­ment of the inflam­ma­to­ry process and swelling of the tra­chea or phar­ynx.

Treatment of snoring in women

Treat­ment for snor­ing may include one or more of the fol­low­ing:

    When obese, weight loss should be taken care of.
    The use of caps (special devices for the oral cavity), which can increase the tone and breathing through the nose. They usually reduce the volume and prevent vibration. Sometimes its complete disappearance is possible after prolonged use of the cap.
    An unusual breathing technique using the didgeridoo pipe. By playing this Australian pipe, the upper respiratory tract is trained, as well as the muscles develop and the larynx, nasopharynx and palate are strengthened.
    Implants can prevent snoring very effectively and quickly.
    Orthodontic treatment to correct jaw defects.
    The use of cryoplasty (cold treatment) or laser. This technique is based on achieving a therapeutic effect by exposing the palate mucosa to cold or heat, respectively.

The dangers of snoring

The dangers of snoring

When snor­ing in women dur­ing a cold, due to impaired breath­ing through the nose, you should not wor­ry too much. Of course, it irri­tates not only loved ones, but also inter­feres with the snor­er him­self, caus­ing dis­com­fort. There­fore, in the morn­ing, fatigue and “bro­ken­ness” are very often felt. Loud snor­ing wakes every­one up, and the brain does not have time to recov­er and rest dur­ing the night, which leads to a decrease in per­for­mance. But as soon as the symp­toms of a cold pass, the snor­ing itself will dis­ap­pear.

Snor­ing con­tributes to some seri­ous con­se­quences. Among them, the most dan­ger­ous is sleep apnea (sud­den hold­ing of breath dur­ing sleep). Dur­ing the night, apnea can be repeat­ed sev­er­al times, in the worst case, com­plete ces­sa­tion of breath­ing is pos­si­ble. In moments of apnea, the blood is not sat­u­rat­ed with oxy­gen in full and its defi­cien­cy occurs. There­fore, peo­ple with sleep apnea are more prone to acci­den­tal noc­tur­nal heart attacks and sud­den death. When deter­min­ing the cause of snor­ing and the occur­rence of apnea, it is imper­a­tive to car­ry out spe­cial­ized treat­ment.

Accord­ing to the results of stud­ies, it turned out that over time, snor­ing can lead to brain destruc­tive changes that con­tribute to a decrease in the vol­ume of the gray mat­ter of the brain and, accord­ing­ly, to a decrease in men­tal abil­i­ties.

How to get rid

Prop­er sleep on your side is con­sid­ered the best option for get­ting rid of “night ser­e­nades”. It is desir­able to ensure the cor­rect posi­tion of the head, so it is bet­ter to get rid of large pil­lows.

When the cause of snor­ing is dif­fi­cul­ty breath­ing, the treat­ment of snor­ing should be aimed at restor­ing free breath­ing. There­fore, nasal drops or sprays can be used to clear the nose. In patholo­gies, surgery is indi­cat­ed: cor­rec­tion of the nasal sep­tum, removal of ton­sils or polyps.

In some cas­es, drug or phys­io­ther­a­py treat­ment of snor­ing is rec­om­mend­ed, as well as weight loss in obe­si­ty.
