Snoring occurs when air flows past relaxed tissues in your throat while you’re sleeping, which causes them to vibrate as you breathe. More than 90 million Americans experience snoring during their night sleep and it can create major tension between you and your sleep partner.
There are many factors that contribute to snoring, including:
You may want to seek further medical assistance if your snoring relates to more excessive symptoms. If you are experiencing daytime drowsiness, morning headaches, pauses in your breath throughout sleep, or wake up with a dry, sore throat, you may have sleep apnea.
If your snoring is accompanied by any of the above symptoms, it may be an indication to see a doctor for further evaluation and sleep test. 75% of people who snore also suffer from this sleeping condition, so don’t wait. Get the cure to your sleepless nights as soon as possible.
