What is snoring?
Snoring is the hoarse or harsh sound that occurs when air flows past relaxed tissues in your throat, causing the tissues to vibrate as you breathe. Nearly everyone snores now and then, but for some people it can be a chronic problem. Sometimes it may also indicate a serious health condition. In addition, snoring can be a nuisance to your partner.
Symptoms of Snoring
Snoring is often associated with a sleep disorder called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Not all snorers have OSA, but if snoring is accompanied by any of the following symptoms, it may be an indication to see a doctor for further evaluation for OSA:
- Witnessed breathing pauses during sleep
- Excessive daytime sleepiness
- Difficulty concentrating
- Morning headaches
- Sore throat upon awakening
- Restless sleep
- Gasping or choking at night
- High blood pressure
- Chest pain at night
- Your snoring is so loud it's disrupting your partner's sleep
- In children, poor attention span, behavioral issues or poor performance in school
Causes of Snoring
When you breathe, you push air through your nose, mouth and throat. If the airway is restricted, tissues — including the soft palate (the back of the roof of the mouth), tonsils, adenoids and tongue — vibrate against each other as you force air through. The vibrations make a rumbling, rattling noise. Several conditions and factors can block airflow. These include:
- Alcohol and other sedatives that relax muscles, restricting airflow.
- Bulky soft tissue, including enlarged adenoids, tonsils or tongue.
- Excess body fat, which puts pressure on the soft tissues and compresses the airway.
- Pregnancy hormones that cause inflammation in the nose.
- Low muscle tone and muscle weakness in the mouth, nose or throat.
- Nasal congestion and inflammation due to a cold, flu, allergies or irritants in the air.
- Structural differences in the mouth, nose or throat that decrease the size of the airway.
How can I stop snoring?
You might be able to prevent snoring by changing your lifestyle, diet and daily activities. To reduce snoring, you should:
- Ask your provider about medications to relieve nasal congestion.
- Avoid alcohol and other sedatives before bed.
- Maintain a weight that's healthy for you, stay active and get plenty of exercise.
- Raise the head of your bed a few inches to change the angle and improve airflow.
- Sleep on your side, not your back.
- Try a snore-reducing pillow that keeps your head and neck in the proper position when you sleep.
