Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,
How old are you?
Are you overweight/ obese?
Any other medical problems/ significant history?
Thanks. Shall wait for your reply.
Thanks for the additional details. Based on your description I think that since you do not have any medical problems, we might be dealing snoring which could be normal for you (as are almost 40 or more percent of people who snore occasionally), or it might be because of:
(a) Some minor anatomical abnormality of the uvula/ soft palate
(b) Obstruction of nose/ nasal septum deviation/ nasal congestion
(c) Enlarged tonsils
(d) Posture while sleeping (especially on lying flat on the back)
(e) Sleep apnea
(f) Slight overweight (with BMI at 25.1)
(g) Large quantity of alcohol consumption/ using sedatives
Please check in with your doctor and get yourself examined thoroughly so that a cause may be found (if there is one). It may help if you could cut down on your weight, try to sleep on a side, reduce consumption of alcohol, and avoid sedatives.
Kindly have a look at this web resource which provides authentic details and it might be quite helpful to you:
I hope that this information helps. Best wishes. Kindly feel free to enquire if you have any remaining concerns or doubts and it would be my privilege to try helping you as much as I can.
Although Dr. Chauhan gave you a very thorough answer, but basically did not address how your problem is assessed. You will likely need a sleep study so that your problem can be evaluated. Sleep studies are done in a laboratory that is made especially to diagnose problems that occur when one sleeps. Your doctor should be able to refer you to one.
If you happen to be obese and this problem started after you became obese, then that could be a contributing factor and learning how to change your eating patterns to decrease your weight would very likely be helpful. If you need suggestion on how to do this, I can explain recent research based information that can help you lose weight.
If you have any further questions what so ever, please write back with them so that I can address them for you.
