More and more people suffer from stertitphobia, also known as snoring phobia. Stertitphobia is an increasing problem amongst people with a snoring spouse.

Not the snorer but the spouse is hugely affected by this phobia. Stertit is Latin for snoring and phobia an extreme or irrational fear of something.

Living with a partner that snores every night often means a disrupted sleep. People suffering from stertitphobia are bothered by their partner’s snoring noise for such a long time that it can lead up to aggression and anger.

Even if their partner no longer snores, they are usually still awake with the fear of hearing a snoring sound. Sometimes people continue to perceive the snoring sound even though the snoring has disappeared. Sometimes people shift their focus in such way they stay awake from just hearing their partner breath.
