In brief: Snoring

There are various things to do to improve or stop snoring.
If possible you should see an ear nose and throat doctor as you may have some serious obstruction that could cause problems down the line such as heart problems. You might have sleep apnea. Being overweight can be a problem.

In brief: Snoring

Hello, snoring is caused by a narrowing in your breathing pathway that is associated with vibration of the soft tissues in your upper airways.
I first recommend weight loss if you are overweight. If your sleeping partner notices a stoppage of your breathing, then sleep apnea may be present which needs more thorough testing. If afrin helps to eliminate the snoring, it may improve with a nasal eval.

In brief: Sleep apnea, snoring

Several possibilities: some people only snore if they sleep on their back, so try avoiding that.
Losing weight. See an ear nose & throat specialist to evaluate your tonsils, adenoids and sinus. Have an overnight sleep study to evaluate for sleep apnea and wear a CPAP or wear a custom made dental device that holds your jaw forward while you sleep thereby increasing the airway.
