You May Have a Sleep Disordered Breathing Problem, Too

Does your bed partner snore so loud that your sleep is disturbed?

Sharing a bed with a snorer can affect your quality of life and also be harmful to your physical and emotional health. In many cases, both bed partners suffer from sleep-disordered breathing and sleep deprivation although only one has clinical signs and symptoms of snoring or sleep apnea. Often, snorers do not take complaints from their bed partner seriously or act in denial – which can make the situation worse.

Research shows that people who sleep next to someone who snores also experience physical and emotional consequences. Snoring and sleep apnea is unique in that it is a condition that can affect two people, although only one person has the problem.

How Snoring and Sleep Apnea Affects Bed Partners

  • Sleep deprivation
  • High levels of fatigue and daytime sleepiness
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Higher rate of aches and pains
  • Hearing loss, especially limited to the one ear most exposed to the snoring
  • Depression or poorer mental health
  • Irritability
  • Memory impairment
  • Increased risk for accidents
