For hundreds of years I’m sure there have been frustrated partners around the world, having a restless night’s sleep due to their significant others snoring. As a result arguments can ensue and it may even result in sleeping in separate rooms to avoid the disruption.
Although the most common snoring complaints come from those sleeping with the snorer rather than the snorer themselves, the problems associated with this issue can run much deeper than the odd lovers spat.
The psychological and emotional impact snoring can have on a sufferer are detrimental as is the impact it has on relationships. However very few people realise how much impact snoring can be having on their health and mental wellbeing.
Snoring results in poor sleep and studies in the U.S have found that poor sleep can be linked to a number of serious illnesses including noninsulin-dependent diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease, and stroke. Not to mention the more common symptoms such as poor concentration, irritability and heightened emotional sensitivity.
