Depends on the cause: Snoring is a significant problem for many people, & often goes undiagnosed or gets passed off as an irritation. A great place to start is an examination by an ear, nose, & throat doctor and a sleep study. Sleep apnea, a serious and potentially life threatening condition, should be ruled out or diagnosed through a sleep a study. Based on findings, options will be presented. Good luck.

Snoring remedies: If you are overweight, losing weight not only reduces pressure on the airways, the tongue shrinks in size, further opening the airway. Don't sleep on your back ( sew a pocket in a t-shirt and put a tennis ball in it ). See an ENT to make sure that there isn't a problem with deviated septum, tonsils or adenoids. Use breathe rite strips. See a dentist to have a custom sleep device made.

R/O OSA: IT MAY BE : OSA can be suggested by history and physical. Excess snoring/daytime sleepiness/apneic episodes/ aM headaches. And the Exam obesity/small oral airway/collar size>18. The definitive test is a PSG with split night/CPAP titration. I would request copy of sleep study and get a second opinion if you are not satisfied with the options. You are young CPAP vs ENT FOR UPP EVAL.

Vibrations in throat: It is usually caused by vibrations in the throat area. Possible cures include sleeping on your side, loosing weight, surgery, and an oral appliance. If the self help options don't work i would see a physician to rule out a life threatening condition called sleep apnea. If you don't have sleep apnea, then i would consider the other options.
