What’s Your Body Trying to Tell You?
Most Likely CausesBeing overweight or having nasal or sinus problems (like a deviated septum, nasal polyps, or allergies) can lead to swelling that partially blocks the airway, increasing the chances that the tissues in the back of your throat will shake, rattle, and roll while you sleep.
Less Likely CauseYou may have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a condition in which snoring is accompanied by brief pauses in breathing as you sleep.
What to do:
- To keep the airway as open as possible, sleep on your side so your throat tissues don't collapse.
- Breathe Right nasal strips (available at drugstores) can help widen nasal passages so you can breathe more easily.
- If your snoring is keeping you or your partner awake, consult a sleep specialist to find out if OSA may be to blame.
