If you are constantly yawning, this could be the reason.









ENT specialist Prof. Dr. Yavuz Selim Yıldırım, ‘Yawning is an involuntary reflex, it can be seen as a pre-sleep preparation or a sign that the parasympathetic system is active in a comfortable environment away from stress.’ said.

– People who cannot sleep physiologically, if you just wake up in the morning, people who have just come to bed may yawn, in addition, you may have seen people who yawn constantly. Beyond this physiological stage, it can be seen as a sign of disease.

– The symptom of a sleep disorder is the constant yawning of people who cannot get enough sleep despite getting enough sleep and who continue to yawn constantly. Constant yawning is a symptom and indicator of diseases such as sleep apnea and cardiovascular disease that prevent oxygen from reaching the brain other than sleep disorder. These people should see a doctor and be treated as soon as possible.

-While yawning is known to be contagious to the public, people who want it repeatedly can also be interpreted as a symptom of many illnesses, from some mental health issues to heart disease.

Prof. Dr. Yavuz Selim Yıldırım said, “A normal person will breathe through the nose with their mouth closed during sleep, and people with nasal congestion will start breathing through the mouth during sleep, and the throat area will close the airway.” .

When there is shortness of breath during sleep, oxygen is not getting to the brain and heart, increasing the risk of a heart attack.

People who constantly yawn should first be examined by an ENT specialist, if there are structural problems, they should be corrected, if there are no structural problems, they should be assessed with a sleep test and a detailed diagnosis made.

Sleep apnea patients wake up tired in the morning, sleep is not enough for them, they tend to sleep all the time at work, they have the symptoms of concentration problems, forgetfulness and irritability. People with sleep apnea fall at the beginning of the night asleep the vehicle and get into a traffic accident, and can suddenly fall asleep while sitting.

– After the diagnosis of sleep apnea has been confirmed by a sleep test, it can be treated with conservative surgery of the nose and throat area. Groups that do not benefit from surgical treatment may receive mask treatment at night while sleeping on their mouth and nose.

A significant reduction in heart attacks and hypertension was achieved in patients treated for sleep apnea.
