Sleep is the perfect time to wind down after a long day, but if a snoring partner is keeping you awake, it can turn midnight hours into a nightmare instead of a dream. Late at night, it’s easy to slip into a helpless mindset: “I think my partner has sleep apnea, but how can I tell?”
Snoring partners may be more common than you expect. A survey from the National Sleep Foundation found that nearly one in four couples sleep in separate beds. Along those lines, snoring affects about 57 percent of men and 40 percent of women. No wonder so many couples are struggling to sleep through the nighttime rumblings of their partner!
It’s easy to understand why many couples choose not to cuddle up next to each other every night when you consider the harmful effects of losing sleep. People aren’t just waking up tired due to late-night snoring from their partners. Lack of sleep is also impacting their overall mental and physical health, building resentment in their relationship, and affecting their ability to function at work.
Plus, on top of the personal struggles an individual can experience with a snoring partner is the worry that the snoring is a sign of something even more serious. We’re here to help break down how to tell if your partner has sleep apnea and give you the information you need to make the best decision for you and your partner’s health.
