Snoring is produced when there is a vibration of the tissues in your throat because of the forceful flow of air from your mouth or lungs. It may be a loud noise that can give your partner a difficult time sleeping. With your partner having a difficult time sleeping and you breathing, both of you may feel tired during the day.
Snoring can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea. This is a serious problem because you stop breathing at times during sleep in obstructive sleep apnea. So if you snore often, talk to your doctor about it.
Snoring is more common in men than in women.
