Sleep disorders are a big hurdle which does not allow you to have a good sleep.

There are various sleep disorders that affect your sleep and ultimately your health.

Some of the very common sleep disorders, their symptoms, causes and remedies are discussed below.

Snoring

This is one of the most famous and common sleep disorders which not only affect your sleep but also affect the sleep of the person sleeping nearby you.

Snoring is many times confused with sleep apnea and thus, it becomes very important for you to have complete knowledge about both these sleep disorders so as to cure them properly.

Snoring is one of the most common sleep disorders which is a narrowing of your airway or obstruction in your throat or mouth cavity.

This narrowing can be due to bad sleep posture or some physical disorder of your throat. And when your airway gets narrow, it blocks the passage of air and creates some sound which is simply called as snoring.

There are number of self- help cures that are effective enough in curing your snoring disorder. People with mild snoring disorder are always suggested to sleep on their side.

You can also raise the head of your bed so as to stop the snoring. There are many more ways to cure your snoring disorder.

Look for them on internet and try them out so as to get a peaceful sleep both for yourself and your better half.


Here are some more stop snoring resources:

Sleep Apnea

This is again a very common sleep disorder which affects your sleep.

In sleep apnea, the breathing of the sufferer stops and he wakes up again and again in order to breathe again.

The pause in breathing may last for 10 to 20 seconds which makes your respiring tough and your sleep an awful one.

It is often seen that these respiring pauses may happen twenty to twenty five times an hour or even more which really troubles the sufferer and makes it hard for him to have a peaceful sleep.

There are various symptoms of sleep apnea which should not be neglected and should be taken care of, so as to cure your sleep apnea disorder and have a healthy sleep.

Some of the most common symptoms are loud snoring, frequent pauses in respiring, choking for air that causes the sufferer to wake, daytime weariness and waking up not fresh after a night sleep.

There are many factors behind sleep apnea but the major causes of this sleep disorder are enormous tonsils, additional weight and sinus congestion.

If you are looking for the treatment of sleep apnea then consult your doctor for CPAP.

This is a mechanical device which is worn by the sufferer so as to get relief from sleep apnea.

There are also some self- help cures for sleep apnea such as sleeping on your side, elevating the head of your bed and shedding pounds.

      I used to have a real problem with snoring; I was so loud I'd wake up my parents somtimes! I ended up having to get a mouth piece which has since helped stop the problem. I wish that I had bought it through here though, I probably paid double for it at the chemist!

      Good information and solutions. One might also try something that helps you sleep such as using a far infrared sauna. My husband has trouble sleeping (anxiety), and our infrared sauna is the only thing that has helped him. http://www.infraredsauna.com/
