Almost everyone snores at one point or another as we sleep. But, if you or a loved one has the issue of constantly snoring every single night, then the problem might be more serious.
There can different ways you may breathe each night while you are sleeping:
During a sleep apnea event, the tongue relaxes against the top of the throat, closing the airway. This then cuts off oxygen to the brain. After a few seconds, the body’s natural reflex kicks in and you'll startle awake so the tongue muscles tighten, open the airway, and restore airflow. A snorer often never fully awakens, but this interruption of sleep patterns causes fatigue since they aren't getting as much sleep as they should.
Many patients with sleep apnea can be complately unaware of the issue. If they have a bed partner, diagnosis may come after the partner notices the constant snoring, long pauses between breaths, and loud snorting or choking sounds that go with a startle. If there is no-one else in the room, the issue may not even be considered until other symptoms prompt an investigation.
Sleep apnea can cause fatigue and sleepiness during the day, irritability, depression, headaches, hypertension, and a host of other health problems. All of these symptoms triggers: oxygen deprivation and fractured sleep cycles.
