Constant weariness during the daytime is a sure sign that the person is not getting enough sleep. If you snore badly then this could be the reason why you aren’t getting enough sleep.
The problem with sleep deprivation is that so many people have suffered from it for so long that they do not actually realize that they are deprived. They, instead, go on day after day not realizing that they exist only on probably half the resources that their body should have. Simply put, they do not recognize that they have a sleeping problem.
If you are a bad snorer then you may experience constantly being woken in the night by your spouse or partner (just so you would stop snoring). The only drawback here is that waking you up can make you very angry plus you would not be able to achieve a deep and restful sleep that your body craves and needs.
Sleep apnoea is another problem that is considered a serious condition, which causes the sufferer to stop breathing for several seconds at a time. It can, however, become so serious that the heart may not be able to resume beating after one episode. This can cause the person to die in their sleep.
Sleep apnoea can also prevent the person from getting natural sleep that is required to recharge the body. This can compound the problem of sleep deprivation that the individual may be experiencing.
Sleep has been compared to money, wherein the longer you go without a reasonable supply, the worse the situation will become. Snoring can keep you from achieving adequate rest at night, which is why sleep deficit is just like a credit card interest.
For example, you did not sleep well on Monday night but you feel just okay on Tuesday. By the time the weekend arrives, however, you will find that your lack of sleep on certain days of the week has made you feel grumpy and awful.
Snoring becomes a problem because it increases the sleep debt that takes a toll on your body. For starters, you may notice that your body is not that effective when it comes to warding of illnesses. Have you noticed just how frequent you get sick compared to when your body is well rested at night?
Concentration will be difficult. You might even be surprised that your memory may fail you. Short temper and edginess are also feelings resulting from lack of sleep. Work can be affected when you are having difficulty with physical and mental coordination, easily lose patience with other people, and even falling asleep on your desk.
What’s more dangerous is if you are a machine operator or driver. There is the danger that you or somebody you know can be involved in an accident that you cause simply because you lack sleep.
By now you know that snoring is not a laughing matter. It is can be deadly if it is not taken care of. Just how do you fix your problem?
Once you’ve identified that snoring is the root cause of your problem, then there should be no time wasted and the problem should be tackled. Review your way of living because classic snoring triggers include too much alcoholic drinks or obesity.
If you’ve tried but still can’t solve your problem on your own then it’s about time that you consider going to a doctor to see if they can help solve your snoring problem.
