Get it checked out!: Seek medical help to determine to cause of your snoring. Typically a collapse airway is involved and today, a simple overnight take home sleep test or a complete psg overnight sleep test in a lab will provide all the information needed to determine if a potentially life threatening, life shortening condition of obstructive sleep apnea may be at play. Do it, it may save your life!

Snoring: I usually recommend weight loss as the ultimate treatment. If not obese, then Afrin nasal spray for no longer than 5 days. After using the spray for 3 days, have a sleep partner rate your snoring. If resolved or much improved, then your nasal passages are contributing to the snoring. Begin saline nasal spray and follow with Nasacort (triamcinolone) OTC. If no improvement consider a dental device may help.
