hi,please consult the doctor to rule out sleep apnoea syndrome.There can be number of causes for snoring like deviated nasal septum,throat weakness causing the throat to close during sleep,Mispositioned jaw, often caused by tension in muscles,Fat gathering in and around the throat or Obstruction in the nasal passageway.

Please see an ENT specialist

Hello.

Try sleeping on your side. If your symptoms reduce, it shows you may be having sleep apnea. It is a condition where breathing stops (apnea) for about 10 second several times during the sleep (mostly in supine position) and you get the feeling that you have not had enough sleep. You don't wake up feeling fresh.

A polysomnography (sleep study) will be helpful in the final diagnosis. Weight reduction will help the situation.

Sleep apnea is a treatable condition. If treated in the mild stages, there is a good chance of a remission.

Regards
