What is Snoring?

Snoring is the harsh sound produced as air travels through relaxed throat
tissues, causing the tissues to vibrate while you breathe. Everybody snores now
and again, but for some, it is a persistent problem. It might potentially signify a
significant medical problem.

If your snoring is accompanied
by disturbed sleep, elevated blood pressure, morning headaches, nighttime
chest discomfort, or a sore throat upon rising, you should consult a doctor.

Causes
Snoring can be caused by a variety of causes, including your mouth and sinus
structure, alcohol intake, allergies, a cold, and weight. The more restricted
your airway, the more powerful the outflow. This generates tissue vibration,
which raises the volume of your snoring.
The following disorders can produce snoring by affecting the airway:
Nasal issues: Snoring can be worsened by chronic nasal congestion or a crooked
barrier between your nostrils.
Sleep Deprivation: Inadequate sleep might cause more throat relaxation.
Sleeping Position: Snoring is more common and loudest when lying on one’s
back since gravity narrows the airway.

Consult your doctor if you experience any of the symptoms listed above.
