Snoring is overall a fairly common problem that can affect all types of people. Occasional snoring can be an annoying problem, and can disrupt sleep to some extent, but it doesn’t always indicate a larger issue. However, if you snore often, you could be facing something a bit more serious. It’s not just your sleep quality that is being affected, it’s the sleep of your loved ones, too. If you’re a habitual snorer, read on to learn what you may be dealing with.

Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Snoring happens when the flow of air through your mouth and nose is obstructed by something. Constant snoring can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious condition that has many negative effects, including:

Interruption of Breathing

This could be for a few seconds, up to several minutes! This is dangerous and serious.

Waking Frequently

You may not even realize that you’re waking as much as you are. This causes you to have very poor quality of sleep which affects your daily life in a number of ways.

Overall Poor Sleep Quality

Waking up so often at night interferes with the normal pattern of sleep, causing more time to be spent in lighter sleep than in the more restorative, deeper sleep that your body truly needs. Your mind and body actually heal when you’re in a deep sleep, so this “light” sleep you’re constantly getting isn’t helping to rejuvenate your body.

Strain on your Heart

When you suffer from sleep apnea, this often causes high blood pressure and enlargement of the heart. This puts you at a much greater risk of heart attack, stroke, Type 2 Diabetes and AFIB.

    Decreased Quality of Life

    When you live with this low quality of sleep, your daily life is impacted negatively. You’re drowsy during the day, irritable, anxious, and uninterested in sex or other activities. You put yourself and others in danger when driving or working with machinery due to increased risk of accidents.


    If you’re snoring constantly, you need to know if it’s caused by sleep apnea. Living with this condition undiagnosed will only cause increased health-risk and decreased quality of life. You’re probably experiencing interrupted breathing, poor quality sleep, and you’re likely putting strain on your heart.
