Snoring, it’s the one thing that all people can relate to. It’s safe to deem it fact that in every circle of friends, there’s a notorious snorer. If you don’t know who it might be—it’s probably you.
All jokes aside, snoring can be something mildly annoying, or it can be dangerously severe. You see, when you breathe while sleeping, air passes in and out between your nose, mouth, and lungs. Under normal circumstances, this process makes very little noise when relaxed.
However, as we have seen in San Antonio sleep apnea studies, that breathing can become very turbulent. It’s similar to when working out vigorously and you breath harder, it makes more noise, but nothing startling.
Sleeping Isn’t Peaceful With Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a condition that affects millions of Americans to varying degrees—for some it is fatal. You see, when you sleep your uvula at the back of your throat relaxes. During breathing, it closes the airway very briefly and re-opens causing you to “snore.”
When Snoring Is Something More Serious
Normal snoring is a common occurrence and typically not a health risk to worry about. However, you should pay attention to your snoring habits as it can be a warning sign. Sleeping disorders that are dental-related such as acid reflux or teeth gnashing can be signs of heart disease. They can also signify throat cancer, emphysema, or a precursor to a stroke.
