Snore: I can pick out people who snore when I examine their throats. When they open their mouth, I can't see the back of the throat because their tongue is raised very high in the mouth( they were just born that way). In addition, you can help stop snore having them lose weight. Sleep apnea is very much under-diagnosed. Anyone who snores a doctor should screen the patient for sleep apnea.

Possible sleep apnea: Feel it of value to consider an overnight sleep study, which would perhaps reveal the significance of your snoring. However, one initial approach is a virtual consult on our paid portion of the HT website.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. If you have gained weight or are overweight that can cause snoring and is the commonest cause. If you are overweight, losing weight is imperative. It would be prudent to see a doctor. Wish you good health!
