Noises People make when sleeping
· Are you aware of the noises you make when asleep?
While asleep, you are suddenly awakened by your partner shaking you and you look stunned!
You are confused by this rude awakening and don't know the reason for such an awakening.
Your partner tells you these following lines.
''I heard you making strange noises!''
Snoring, groaning and moaning can go on forever, and you don't know how much of such noises you make while asleep.
· Are you suffering from Catathrenia?
· Have you heard of Catathrenia?
This is an unusual sleeping disorder, which many individuals are still not aware of in their sleeping lives.
The weird or strange night events are known as Parasomnias, so basically Catathrenia falls under this category.
At night these occurrences take over, and you don't know of the noises you make in your sleep.
While sleeping breathing deeply affects you. In this disorder the breathing is inhaled deeply, and the breath is held in for a much shorter while.
A long groan is emitted while breathing out. Sometimes, moaning is heard when breathing out shortly.
The groaning, or moaning noises lasts a couple seconds.
The groaning noises do get you up with a snorting noise.
The next noise made by you is secondary noise, known as the snorting gets you up.
Loud noises can sound weird!
Noises are disturbing but the person making these noises is not aware of it.
The experience of Catathrenia can go on for years and you won't know you have this sleep disorder.
Partners who go through hearing noises from the other partner will experience these noises at second hand. If the partner can sleep through such noises there should be no issues.
Don't confuse Catathrenia with snoring as both are not the same.
You must first understand the sleeping disorders before jumping into conclusions.
When you snore the problem lies in the in-breath, while Catathrenia takes place in the out-breath.
The noises one makes when snoring occurs on the out-breath. The difference here is in Catathrenia the individual holds their breath after breathing in.
Therefore, there is the contradiction in snoring and Catathrenia.
You need to distinguish between the both.
Note that, ONLY with Catathrenia does the individual actually hold their breath after breathing in.
· Sleep apnea:
Individuals suffering from sleep apnea, also experience other breathing issues. The difference is when in the pause moment. The individual pauses after out breathing. Catathrenia allows for the pause only after in breathing.
It is a very dangerous sound of breathing.
This happens when the individual has problems with their airways.
The high-pitched noise is made when the airways are constricted.
Noises made while sleeping can be very dangerous if you don't know the facts.
The moaning can occur if one is experiencing a seizure.
· Breathing disorders:
Apnea, epilepsy, and stridor are most important for a doctor to first take note of, as these are threatening to one's life.
· Do you know what causes Catathrenia?
This involves constricted airways.
When the vocal cords close, that too can be a cause of Catathrenia.
Brain damage is when the breathing is not in control and feeding the brain cells.
Sleeping patterns can be affected when you are highly stressed.
However, these are just theories. Catathrenia has more to do with social issues than being medically dangerous to individuals.
Sleep disorders can be harmful if not seen to.
Catathrenia is a breathing disorder related to a sleep disorder.
· How can you be treated with Catathrenia?
Noises made in your sleep are not known to you.
You should first recognize your problem.
Once you know it is a different sleep disorder, talk to your doctor.
Noises can be disturbing and frightening, especially if you don't know the reasons for such noises.
Catathrenia is a mild sleeping disorder.
An Example as follows:
She is married for over twenty years and her husband has been moaning in his sleep for all those years.
The name for this disorder has surprised her!
She had no idea of what these moans meant and it is a sleeping disorder.
You got to be an understanding person to go through these noises while trying to all asleep.
Partners are unaware of the noises they make in their sleep.
Another case of sleep disorders:
A woman over the age of fifty had experienced a sleep disorder since her thirties. She often woke up from her sleep from holding her breathing and from a pounding heart beat.
She, also experienced shortness of breathing.
Her husband was worried with the way his wife slept by his side. With such noises and it sounded dangerous to him.
She was diagnosed with sleep apnea
Noises made in your sleep:
Moaning, groaning and snoring are not the only sounds one can make while asleep.
Sometimes a clicking noise is made from your jaws while in a deep sleep.
It sounds funny when you think about these harmless noises.
These noises can worsen or stay the same.
Noises can be troubling for others trying to sleep.
Use earplugs to avoid listening to these noises.
Noises made while sleeping can be most difficult to deal with.
People act differently in their sleep and noises can a big part of their sleeping lives.
Bad dreams can cause many sleepless nights.
I have heard my partner making weird noises while asleep, and that got me into writing about noises made by people when asleep.
Humming is another noise that can affect you when asleep.
I know of someone who hums every single night. It rarely wakes her up.
It is nothing to be concerned about and she had this problem since birth.
I was enlightened by the stories of many people who felt like sharing their stories with me.
As I have mentioned in these examples and have wondered to myself about the noises I make when asleep.
Sleeping in the same room is another problem for couples with sleep disorders.
Noises you make in your sleep can cause embarrassment when having a sleepover at a friend's place.
Grunting is another breathing problem when asleep.
He has been making a grunting noise for years. It sounds like a big in drawn breath, and is released slowly, a bit at a time. A grunt is made while the breathing is released.
The process continues for a while, and there is usually a full release of breathing and then back to normal.
· Do you think moods, or events can affect you in making these noises at night?
You can drive someone nuts in listening to your continuous noises at night.
Sleeping with noise does not allow you to have good night’s sleep.
Handling these noises can be most annoying.
I had such issues when my partner. His snoring had kept me awake for nights on.
I decided to go to bed when I am tired and sleepy, to avoid listening to his noises.
My plan worked out perfectly.
Rest in the day and avoid a stressful life.
Sleep disorders occurs when individuals can't handle excitement, or busy lifestyles.
Some individuals are born with a hum or a groan.
At times the foods you eat can affect your sleeping patterns.
Certain beverages can be the other issue for some individuals.
Most people are not good sleepers.
Sleep walking and sleep talking can keep you up all night wondering what would be next.
Grinding teeth, clicking of the jaws, snoring, groaning, moaning, humming, and nightmares, are all part of what you experience in the day. At night these events affect your sleep patterns.
Some noises can go on forever, or worsen while other events don't last that long in your mind.
