Snoring

If your throat structures are too large or the muscles relax too much during sleep, the air passage may be partially blocked. As air from the nose or mouth passes around this blockage, the throat structures vibrate and rattle against each other, causing the familiar sound of snoring. At times, this sound can be so loud that snoring wakes up others, or even themselves, during the night. Snoring gets worse as more and more of the air passage is blocked.
