Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Snoring

Snoring

Snoring is noisy breathing during sleep. While you sleep, the muscles of your throat relax, your tongue falls backward, and your throat becomes narrow and floppy. As you breathe, the walls of the throat begin to vibrate - generally when you breathe in, but also, to a lesser extent, when you breathe out. These vibrations lead to the characteristic sound of snoring. Sometimes the walls of the throat collapse completely so that it is completely occluded, creating a condition called apnea (cessation of breathing). This is a serious condition which requires medical attention.
