Talk To A Doctor

You shouldn’t think of snoring as just ‘one of those things’ that are part of everyday life. This is not true and it really is worth talking to a doctor.

A doctor can help identify the root cause of your snoring. They may find the cause is a sinus infection or something unrelated, like allergies, a deviated septum, enlarged tonsils, nasal polyps, or weight problems. In some cases, they might recommend using devices like SnoreMD to alleviate the issue.

In some cases, snoring may be a sign of sleep apnea, a more serious condition in which your breathing starts and stops while you are asleep (Click here to take our sleep apnea questionnaire).
