What causes snoring?
Snoring happens when your tongue, mouth, throat or airways in your nose are vibrating as you breathe. It can be caused by a range of factors: you may have blocked or narrow airways in your nose, your mouth may be falling open while you’re asleep or your tongue may be partially blocking the back of your throat. You’re more likely to snore if you’re overweight, smoke, drink too much alcohol or if you sleep in your back. Sometimes snoring can be caused by sleep apnoea, which is when your airways become temporarily blocked while you sleep.
What happens when you snore?
When you snore, your tongue, mouth, throat or airways in your nose are vibrating as you breathe. This is because these parts of your body have relaxed and narrowed while you’re asleep. If your snoring is caused by a more serious condition like sleep apnoea, your airways will become blocked while you sleep and you may make gasping or choking sounds. If your partner describes your snoring in this way, and you’re feeling very tired during the day, you should speak to your doctor for specialist treatment.
How can I prevent snoring while sleeping?
Snoring is a common problem and it isn’t usually caused by anything serious. It can, however, disturb those around you and disrupt their sleep, so it’s best to take some preventative measures if your snoring is becoming a problem. These include trying to lose weight if you’re overweight, sleeping on your side and avoiding smoking, drinking too much alcohol and sleeping pills. You can also try throat sprays and nasal strips to help prevent snoring.
Can nasal strips help with snoring?
Congestion can often be worse at nighttime, leading to snoring because you’re more likely to breathe through your mouth when your nose is blocked.
Using a nasal strip can increase the airflow through your nose, helping to reduce snoring, making bedtime a more positive space for snorers and their partners.
