Causes of snoring, connective tissue disorders to the brain

Snoring, aka snoring, is not a sign that someone is sleeping soundly. On the other hand, snoring is a serious problem.

There are a number of medical causes of snoring ranging from connective tissue disorders to the brain.

Here are a number of reasons a person snores or snores while sleeping, according to experts.

1. Loose connective tissue

The emergence of a snoring sound during sleep occurs because there is a loose connective tissue in the throat that makes the tongue fall backwards.

"When this happens, as soon as someone sleeps and inhales and exhales a sound occurs. Just like a flute with a closed sound hole," said Psychiatrist Dharmawan A Purnama.

Snoring due to sagging connective tissue can be stopped by tilting or making a person sleep on their stomach.


2. Sleep apnea

Snoring can occur due to the influence of the central nervous system in the brain. This disorder is also known as sleep apnea. This condition can cause a person not to breathe or lack of oxygen during sleep.

"There is also snoring which is central in the respiratory center in the brain. Most often because there is an infarction or blockage in the brain. Others can be due to Parkinson's disease and dementia," said Dharmawan, who is a specialist in mental medicine at RSJ Dr. Soeharto Heerdjan Jakarta.

The prevalence of sleep apnea increases with age. This condition is also more likely to occur in obese people and smokers. Studies show sleep apnea occurs in 27 percent of elderly men and 19 percent of elderly women.

A similar statement was also made by a special neurologist at the National Brain Center Hospital (RSPON), Dr. Nurul Rakhmawati Ismail when contacted separately.

"Because obesity does not make the neck short. Then, gender also affects. This [snoring] often occurs in men. Men have twice the risk than women," said Nurul.

Snoring due to nervous system disorders cannot be stopped even if the person is sleeping on his side or on his stomach.


3. Stress

Dharmawan said snoring can also be triggered because someone is stressed or tired. This snoring usually only appears when the person is stressed.

Dharmawan explained that snoring that occurs due to sagging connective tissue, problems in the brain, and stress must be addressed immediately.

If allowed to snore, it can make a person sleep poorly, unproductive, and trigger a number of illnesses. For example, neglected sleep apnea is associated with heart disease, stroke, and dementia.

"You can check with a doctor. If the connective tissue is loose, you can go to an ENT doctor, if it is central to a neurologist or neurologist, if it is due to stress it can be a psychiatrist," said Dharmawan.

The doctor will perform an examination to see anatomical abnormalities combined with a number of other examinations such as the heart and head to determine the exact cause of the snoring.
