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 respond 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 are unique in that they are both conditions that can affect two people, although only one person has the problem. This is why it is important for you to accompany your partner to his or her doctor visit so that you can describe the symptoms.
