ENT and sleep eval: See an ear, nose, throat specialist to see if large tonsils or adenoids are blocking air flow. Also, a sleep dr can see if there is airway obstruction that can be helped by a CPAP machine that forces air with positive pressure.

Consider sleep study: You may want to consider undergoing a sleep study to observe how you sleep and also to take measurements to see if you have obstructive sleep apnea = a condition where your airway is more obstructed only during sleep causing the sound of snoring. If you have this condition the best treatment is a breathing machine called cpap, which helps to keep the airway open and eliminate the snoring.
