Pain in the throat accompanied by difficulty breathing to snoring during sleep is the most common cause of tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the tonsils and throat). This condition is prone to be experienced by pregnant women, especially those who have problems with immunity, for example due to malnutrition, lack of rest, experiencing prolonged psychological stress, or also having a history of certain illnesses (such as diabetes or HIV). Tonsillopharyngitis can occur due to viral infection, bacterial infection, or also other inflammation in the area around the throat, for example due to excessive consumption of spicy food, inhaling irritating gases, reflux of stomach acid, excessive vocal cord strain, allergies to food or other substances, and so on. . As a result of this inflammation, the throat will feel painful, reddish, and the tonsils can swell and partially cover the entire airway. This condition ultimately makes you snore sleep.
Not only that, you can also sleep snoring that you experience due to other factors, such as the urge of an enlarged fetus towards the upper airway, tongue that slides back during sleep, nasal disorders (for example, septal deviation, rhinitis, nasal polyps, sunisitis. ), peritonsillar abscess, tonsil cancer, and so on.
It is better if you go directly to the doctor, ENT specialist, or obstetrician considering that you are pregnant so it is not possible to consume any drugs. With a direct examination, especially in your ENT area, your doctor will be able to determine the best treatment. If necessary, the doctor will do blood tests or tissue samples from the swollen tonsils to determine the appropriate treatment.
