Snoring can be problematic for those you share a space with at night - and it can also disrupt the quality of your own sleep.
Snoring is something that affects large numbers of adults so if you suffer from it then you’re not alone. For most people snoring is annoying but doesn’t indicate that anything more problematic is happening.
Although snoring might seem like a fairly innocuous issue it can be very problematic. Snoring not only disturbs your own sleep but can also do the same to the people around you and this can put pressure on key relationships.
Snoring is very common. Most of us will snore at some point in our lives, although it is usually only a temporary problem that happens when a cold cause a blocked nose.
If you snore regularly it’s a good idea to see an ENT specialist to find out if there’s a reason why, especially if your breathing seems to be affected.
The most common reason for snoring is probably a blocked nose. Most of us will occasionally wheeze, whistle or snore when we have a cold that is stuffing up our airways.
Snoring is very common, affecting approximately 15 million people in the UK.
