Perhaps you’re certain that you have always slept well. You don’t remember ever being fatigued before, dealing with headaches, having trouble staying asleep, or snoring. So, what happened? What shifted that transitioned you from someone with an exceptional ability to sleep soundly through the night to someone who requires care for a sleep disorder? Let’s help you begin understanding what may be going on with your body (and what to do).
You May Have Had Them (But Didn’t Notice)
You may have had sleeping problems like sleep apnea or snoring for a long time. However, it’s possible that your sleep disorder has become worse. It’s possible that you suddenly have an audience (perhaps you just got married) and someone is finally picking up on what’s going on. Remember, it’s often easy to overlook sleeping concerns until the side effects become serious.
It Could Be Linked To Lifestyle
Something in your lifestyle may have changed that’s caused you to end up with a sleep disorder. Remember that the following can have a significant effect on encouraging your throat muscles and tissues to collapse or may contribute to the obstruction of your air passages:
- Carrying excess weight
- Drinking alcohol
- Using relaxants
- Sleeping on your back
- Chronic congestion
