So, you’re planning to pull off the perfect Valentine’s Day experience. You’ll say all the right words, be charming, and you’ll even arrange an evening of romance. With so much planning put into this very special night, you want to end the night on an exceptional note. The last thing that you want to do is keep your beloved awake by your snoring. Not all snoring requires treatment, but if you routinely shake the walls when you sleep, Dr. Sultan can help with treatments for snoring and sleep apnea.
How Much is Too Much?
Snoring happens for many reasons, and even the most demure women and dignified men will snore at one point in their lives. The condition does not discriminate. Snoring is the sound that is created when the tissues in your nose and throat vibrate as you breathe. The sound that someone makes as they slumber whilst the rest of those in the room lie awake can vary from a soft, low purring to a cacophony of sounds that could possibly wake the entire neighborhood. The point at which a person’s snoring becomes problematic is based upon the underlying cause of the snoring, as well as any issues that the snoring causes for others who happen to be in proximity of the snorer.
Surprising Reasons Why People Snore
Snoring may not indicate an underlying issue. You may be able to make some minor changes to make sure that you and your beloved sleep soundly this Valentine’s Day. Some of the reasons that people snore are:
- Sleeping on their backs
- Consuming alcohol
- Using sedatives and sleep aids
- Being overweight
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a medical condition that causes disruptive breathing when a person sleeps, and this may be accompanied by snoring. Not every case of snoring is sleep apnea, and not every case of sleep apnea involves snoring. Obstructive sleep apnea is caused by a disruption in the upper airway, and it is the most common type of sleep apnea. Dr. Sultan can diagnose your sleep apnea and offer treatments that will help you keep the love and adoration going well beyond Valentine’s Day.
