We arrived after sleep. It happens more frequently than we think, but you'll be surprised to learn why. If this occurs to you, you are aware of the drool spots on your pillow and the need to wake up.
What does it mean?Saliva on the pillow is typically noticed by people who are extremely tired and haven't slept for a while. When you get a good night's sleep—that is, when you haven't been ordered to sleep or woken up—this situation arises. Consequently, your dream was unbroken.
Additionally, you may have noticed that when you sleep on your side, saliva tends to flow more frequently than when you sleep on your back. It's true that saliva starts to flow from the back of the throat when you sleep on your back.
Another factor is the overproduction of saliva brought on by allergic rhinitis and some food allergies, which causes salivation.
Scientists believe that episodes of acid reflux cause stimulation of the esophagus by stomach acid. As a result, the oesophagosalivary reflex is excited, resulting in excessive production of saliva.
A sinus infection can be another cause of drooling. Upper respiratory tract infections are usually associated with breathing and swallowing problems, which cause fouling due to saliva build-up.
In addition, when your nasal is blocked because of the flu, you tend to breathe with your mouth, so that excess saliva flows during sleep.
You can suffer from sleep apnea. Symptoms of sleep apnea include difficulty sleeping, heavy breathing, heavy snoring, or heavy drooling. If you have these symptoms, it is best to consult the doctor.
How to avoid drooling on your pillow?
Try to sleep on your back. If you sleep next to it, you risk drooling during the night. This is simply because gravity causes the opening of the mouth and allows the drool to settle on your pillow.
Breathe throw your nose. One of the main reasons for the drool
is that the nasal sinuses are clogged. Because of this, people breathe
throw their mouths and drool in the process.
