Why do I snore?

Why does snoring occur?

When air flows through a narrow passage or is about to collapse, a vibration is produced that generates the annoying noise we know as snoring. It is not a process that should be taken normally, as it is a disturbance of the normal functioning of the upper airways.
For this reason, a medical check-up is usually recommended to discern whether or not the snoring is related to a possible sleep apnea and, in any case, to initiate treatment to reduce or eliminate it.

What happens if I snore?

Snoring is often associated with sleep apnea and is considered one of the most striking symptoms of this disorder. However, snoring does not always mean the presence of sleep apnea. Still, it is a clear sign that something is not going as it should. Over time, the presence of snoring can lead to the development of other breathing disorders such as sleep apnea.

Snoring, although more socially accepted, is still an uncomfortable situation for life as a couple or for family life because of the discomfort it causes at bedtime. Every year new figures are reported of people, both men and women, who present a serious snoring disease.
