If you’ve ever slept in the same room with someone who snores really loudly, you know how annoying it is. They probably cannot help it and when you let them change positions, they’re quiet for a few minutes and then it sounds like there’s a generator in your room all over again.
If you snore regularly, it’s not something to just ignore even if it’s not bothering you too much. In fact, snoring may be a sign of a serious health condition, including: obstructive sleep apnea (blocked airways), obesity, an issue with the structure of your mouth, nose, or throat and sleep deprivation. In other cases, snoring may be caused simply by sleeping on your back or drinking alcohol too close to bedtime.
We’ve found a few solutions to snoring. Check them out.
