Sleeping next to someone who snores 'is bad for your mental and physical health'

It can increase the risk of anxiety and depression

Sleeping next to someone who snores can be a real challenge and can even affect your health, apparently.

According to a new study, it can affect both your mental and physical health in several ways including increasing the risk of anxiety and chances of suffering a stroke.

As reported by Bright Side, losing sleep can have an impact on the body's ability to recover and fulfill biological functions like memory consolidation and metabolism regulation.

Also, a person who is suffering from a lack of sleep is prone to make more mistakes, think slowly and lower their productivity.

Sleeping next to someone who snores can also cause relationship problems.

The report says that listening to a person snoring next to you every night and having to wake them up to stop them from making noise makes them "feel upset".

In some cases, the snoring may be so bad that the couple chooses to sleep in separate bedrooms or, in extreme cases, get a divorce.

The site says that because of the person's snoring, they become the "main reason for your bad mood and the primary target of your anger".

A negative atmosphere can cause stress, inflammation and changes in appetite.

Meanwhile, a study by Queen's University in Candada analysed the effects of snoring on both the snorers and their partners when it came to hearing loss.

The test was done on four couples which ages ranged between 35 and 55.

The results showed that the snorers weren't affected by the snoring sound and this is because the brain dampens respiratory interruptions during sleep.

However, 100% of their partners did suffer from hearing loss especially in the ear that was exposed to snoring.

In another study by the Imperial College of Science in London, it was found that loud noises can raise blood pressure.

A greater level of noise increases the risk of hypertension, which can lead to kidney problems, dementia and heart disease.
