Whats the best way to sleep, if I snore during sleeping?

Depends. Depends on what the reason is for snoring. Usually, flat on back is the worse and side and stomach are better. If nasal congestion is the cause of snoring, position may not matter.
On your side. Sleeping on your back generally makes snoring worse, as it is easier for the tongue to fall back and restrict/block the airway. Try sleeping on your side as this will help. If your snoring is very robust, you might consider a sleep study to determine if you have sleep apnea. This is a conditon where breathing is stopped for more than 10 seconds, and can be more serious. Call your md to check.

Not necessarily. Some people do snore without any cessation of breathing (apnea). But, it is not possible for you to self diagnose the presence or absence of sleep apnea. You need a sleep study for that. Often times it is the bed partner that hears the gasping or choking of which the sleeper is unaware. If you are a robust snorer now, expecially at age 35, it is likely that you will have apnea later in life. Read more...

Just to be clear. Maybe you don't mean it like this but the statement almost sounds as if you are equating the term APNEA with the act of SNORING.....I won't use the word "unconsciously" only because I don't believe there is such a thing as a CONSCIOUSLY SNORING individual who is at the same time asleep! LOL..Anyways, APNEA does not happen as a guaranteed consequence of snoring. A person who snores MAY have apnea. Read more...

Airway almost shut. The noise you hear, and worse, what others are hearing is the soft tissue somewhere in your airway almost closing. The normal flow of air is decreased even if you aren't diagnosed with sleep apnea. Make sure you are taking no sedatives in the evening, as they can make the snoring worse. See a sleep physician, especially if you have excessive daytime sleepiness, or high blood pressure. Read more...
