Why Am I Snoring?

Although the person who is doing the snoring may not know they snore, their partner sure does. Not only is snoring annoying to someone else, the snoring itself can cause you to wake up a few times throughout the night.

What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a condition where the tissues in the back of your mouth collapse and block your airway. When the tissues block your airway, you will wake up, and your breathing will continue as normal. The condition itself can be quite harmful, especially if it persists undiagnosed and untreated. Sleep apnea is linked with heart conditions, depression, anxiety, and fatigue-related accidents.
