The ill effects of snoring stretch far beyond your partner getting disturbed and leaving the room. Snoring can affect your health in many ways. Learn how.

Interrupted breathing

Snoring can lead to gasping, choking and interrupted breathing. If such interruptions are frequent and more than 10  minutes at a stretch then the condition is known as sleep apnea, which can be alarming. If you are suffering from this disorder you should consult your doctor immediately.

Disrupted sleep cycle

Snoring keeps people in a state of light sleep instead of letting them enter the state of restorative deep sleep that the human body needs.

Chronic headaches

If every morning begins with a headache for you, this may be a side effect of your snoring. Other causes may be stress, lack of sleep, hypertension or inadequate levels of oxygen in your blood. 

A disturbed partner

You snoring loudly throughout the night may be taxing on your partner. Moreover, your partner may fall victim to stress and anxiety because of regular sleep disturbance because of your stress. 

Arrhythmia

Another dangerous side effect of snoring may be arrhythmia, which occurs when a heart’s normal rhythm becomes too fast, slow, or is irregular. What’s more, the combination of abnormal heart rhythm and interrupted breathing can pose a very real danger to your health.

GERD

Another uncomfortable effect of snoring can be gastro esophageal reflux disease, which can be either caused or exacerbated by snoring.

Stroke

Loud snoring has also been associated with the narrowing of the neck arteries called carotid atherosclerosis, which in turn increases your chances of having a stroke.

Poor mental health

Another uncomfortable effect of snoring can be gastro esophageal reflux disease, which can be either caused or exacerbated by snoring.
