Snoring – A (Real) Problem?
Well, this one comes to the snoring cause and effect it has on your health, and empathy (in some cases). In some cases, snoring is just a nuance for you and/or your bed partner. But in some cases, it is a condition that can seriously endanger your health (especially in the case of OSA).
The thing you should do is consult with a physician, ideally a sleeping specialist, and do a sleep study. Let the qualified medical person decide the severity of your snoring condition.
Visit a doctor if you have signs or symptoms of sleep apnea (gasping for air during sleep, frequent urination during the night, excessive daytime sleepiness, wake up with a headache, wake up with the dry mouth or sore throat, if you have decreases in attention, vigilance, concentration, motor skills, and verbal and visuospatial memory), or if someone suggests that your snoring "sounds like" sleep apnea, or if before-mentioned remedies and lifestyle changes do not reduce your snoring.
Snoring is a condition that you can live with, but it’s also a condition that is treatable. Keep that in mind!
