You make snorting or rattling noises when you breathe during sleep, but have you thought of how this habit may be affecting your quality of life? Snoring can cause excessive tiredness and poor concentration. It can even have a negative impact on your relationship with your partner.
In some cases, snoring is just a symptom of a more serious health problem known as obstructive sleep apnea which occurs if the airways are blocked when you sleep. In severe cases, a person may wake up choking in the middle of the night. We assess an individual’s snoring and determine how severe it is before prescribing treatment.
